The best snowpack since 2005 affords a unique opportunity to raft 18 miles of the Middle Rio Grande immediately north of Albuquerque, The river undergoes a dramatic transformation from Algodones, which features a narrow river channel, volcanic topography and two small, Class I rapids, to the southern end of Corrales approaching Alameda, where we're immersed in a braided wetlands environment with a variety of small channels winding through numerous islands.

With elevated flows saturating the recent restoration work throughout the bosque, and also increasing current speeds to an average of over 5 mph, we can raft the full reach this spring in just over 4 hours of river time. We'll break somewhere along the way to enjoy a picnic lunch (provided), and discuss some of the projects currently prioritized by New Mexico Wild this year.

$75.00 per person. 20% of the proceeds will go to support New Mexico Wild's conservation efforts.
