Giving Back: Rafting for Refuse
New This Year! 50th Anniversary Celebration of The Wild and Scenic Rivers Act
Since 1997, Glacier Guides and Montana Raft has hosted “Rafting For Refuse,” an annual river clean up. Every year on a Saturday in June, we clean up trash at the public river access points and along the river corridor on the Wild and Scenic Middle Fork of the Flathead River.
This year — 2018 — after cleaning up our river, we are joining forces with our local river stewards to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act! Did you know the Three Forks of the Flathead River were part of the inspiration for the Act?
