The Verde River Rafting Expedition trip is just that; an Expedition! This trip will launch from Clear Creek and take out at Gap Creek covering roughly 14 miles of one of Arizona's Wild and Scenic Rivers. Along the way we'll likely see a wide range of wildlife: River Otters, Deer, Bald Eagles, Wild Turkeys, and countless others. While on this trip you will learn how to navigate white water, perform basic river rescue techniques, scout and portage rapids, rig your own inflatable kayak, and Learn Leave No Trace Practices. While running this amazing stretch of river we will be helping with some hands-on river restoration work by cleaning up impacted camp sites. The Verde River is a unique and special place; as you enjoy it, you'll also be contributing to its preservation and future. If taking for credit, this course is based on the Arizona Game and Fish National Paddle Sport Education Program, through which you will receive your certification.
