Eagle Float on the Colorado River

CFI and Sheri Griffith Expeditions partner on this unique winter outing

Float down a mild and scenic stretch of the Colorado River this February for a chance to see wintering bald eagles in a wilderness setting. Along the way there will be opportunities to learn about bird identification from guests from Tracy Aviary in Salt Lake City and other "expert" birders. Participants initially meet "at the take out" at the Ranger Station and CFI will transport to the launch point at Loma. Covid protocols will be in place; please contact us if you would like additional information on these outfitting and transportation protocols.
