Owens River Water Trail Recap

After three pleasant days floating the future Owens River Water Trail with volunteer groups this summer, we’ve opened up 3,070 feet of navigable river channel! It’s exciting to see this project take shape. Stay tuned for future opportunities to join us on the river.

Volunteers work to open up the channel by cutting encroaching tules and removing them from the river. Photo by Larry Freilich.
The hardest part of the job is hauling the cut tules out of the river. Those things are heavy! Photo by Larry Freilich.
