Need a Really Great Summer Job? Working on the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon?

Hello, everyone,

I am writing to let you know that FWS is now accepting applications for 2016 summer boat operators. The announcement will be open through December 11, and the link to the announcement is listed below. Please pass this on to any rafting-oriented people who may be interested.

This year we will be conducting a lot of our work early in the season (April-May) and may be able to hire a commercial guide who wants to return to guiding as the summer season picks up. Have them get in touch with me to discuss the details.

I hope you’re having a good start to winter. Let’s hope the snows come for a good boating season.

Cheers,

Tildon

Grand Canyon Gondola Project seems to be Derailed

Grand Canyon Trust
Hello Friends,Good news! Years of fighting a well-funded campaign to build a mega resort and tramway on the Grand Canyon’s east rim have finally paid off.Save the Confluence family members and Navajo citizens opposed to the proposed “Escalade” development are celebrating. Escalade’s promoters are no longer employed in the executive office of the Navajo Nation.

On May 12, Navajo President Russell Begaye took office. The next day he issued a firm statement against Escalade. Begaye’s vice president, Jonathan Nez, added “any attempts to pass legislation to proceed with the development would be vetoed by the president.”

Save the Confluence family members expressed relief and thanked the new leaders for ending their “nightmare” under the Ben Shelly administration: “We believe ‘the two mighty’ rivers, the Colorado and the Little Colorado, have spoken.” They concluded that “while the president’s stance is being recognized as good and welcome news, we will remain cautious of the Navajo Nation Council.”

As you know, protecting the Grand Canyon requires constant vigilance. The Forest Service is currently seeking public comments on whether to pave the way for a large subdivision and several million square feet of retail space near Tusayan, within half a mile of Grand Canyon National Park. You have until June 2, 2015 to comment.

The Grand Canyon Trust pledges our ongoing assistance to Save the Confluence families and efforts to permanently protect the confluence and Grand Canyon from inappropriate development.

Thanks to all for your enduring support to Keep the Canyon Grand.

With gratitude,

Roger Clark

Grand Canyon Program Director

P.S. Your donations make this work possible. Make a gift today.

It is hard work with long days when on the river.  It is for the Colorado Endangered Fish Recovery project and you will see some awesome canyons and learn a lot about the endangered fish.  The heart of the program is a shocking operation to check on the progress of the fish.  So you have to row the heavy boats down the edge of the river unlike normal river running.  So if you know of someone forward this to them.  If selected you have to get what is called a DUNS number and go through a complicated process to get paid as the government has changed the way it pays these salaries, but I did it, so with a little patience anyone else can do it.

Small Craft Operator (boatmen) jobs for FWS

Thanks,

USMC Wounded Warriors

Sponsored by the Grand Canyon River Runners Association http://www.gcriverrunners.org

Grand Canyon – Colorado River Rafting TripGCRGA-Logo.jpg

On this trip Wounded Warriors will experience moments of pure thrill, times of absolute serenity, and a deep connection with nature – all of which combine to create a truly life-changing experience. They’ll learn about the history and geology of the mighty Colorado River. They’ll strengthen friendships, form bonds that will last a lifetime, and do it all under the supervision of professional river guides and trained military medical personnel.

The Adventure Begins

Each day, they’ll wake up to the smell of freshly brewed coffee, and the sounds of rushing water mingled with the murmur of sleepy voices echoing through the canyon walls. Breakfast is hot and hearty. After filling up, the group will form a “bucket line” to help load the gear back on the boats. Then the Colorado River beckons and they’re off once again experiencing a day of adventure as they continue on their journey.

Immersed in Nature

Wounded Warriors will enjoy the spectacular white water rapids and stretches of calm water, encouraging them to relax in the warm sun and enjoy breathtaking scenery. When lunchtime comes, they’ll make sandwiches, grab a cold drink and relax with a book-or perhaps hike or fish-before shoving off again for an afternoon of surprises.

Settling in for the Night

Late afternoon finds the group at camp for the evening. As the guides assemble the camp kitchen, everyone finds their ideal camp spot and sets up their home for the night. They’ll relax with a cool drink and hors d’ oeuvres, and get better acquainted with their fellow river companions as dinner sizzles on the grill. After a mouth-watering dinner and experiencing a gorgeous canyon sunset, they’ll join in the conversation of the group, and listen to the quiet of the canyon as they settle into their sleeping bags under a blanket of stars.

The Sponsor:

The Grand Canyon River Runners Association is a 501 (c.) 3  group working to preserve public access to the Colorado River in Grand Canyon National Park.  GCRRA donates up to twenty percent of all membership fees to organizations that support conservation activities along the river, or which provide visitation opportunities for special populations.  Founded in 2004, GCRRA’s members enjoy a close working relationship with other Colorado River – Grand Canyon organizations, including the Grand Canyon River Outfitters Association, the Grand Canyon River Guides, and the Grand Canyon Private Boaters Association.

Our Passengers:

The United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment provides and enables assistance to wounded, ill and injured Marines, sailors attached to or in support of Marine units, and their family members in order to assist them as they return to duty or transition to civilian life.

DONATIONS!!!

We are thrilled to be able to offer this special opportunity to a more deserving group of veterans who have sacrificed so much in their service to our country.  It will be the experience of a lifetime for people who never dreamed they would have the opportunity.

Our Wounded Warriors Trip, which includes pre-trip and post-trip meals, lodging and transportation, will be a 10-day river adventure – two motor rigs, a paddle raft, and the specialized equipment required to support passengers with disabilities. 

The outfitter for this trip, an authorized concessioner of the National Parks Service in Grand Canyon National Park and a member of the Grand Canyon River Outfitters Association, has extensive experience aiding persons with disabilities in rafting the Colorado River. Because river trips have to be planned well in advance, we have booked a charter for the summer of 2015. But initial deposits are due soon, so we are seeking donations now!
