2017 San Juan River Trip

GCI is proud to partner with Holiday River Expeditions for a special trip down the San Juan River to benefit Glen Canyon Institute. We will be joined by renowned author and water policy expert Dan McCool. This five-day expedition into the lower stretch of the San Juan River finishes at Clay Hills—above its confluence with the Colorado River—offering some of the most scenic beauty in the entire Colorado Plateau as well as a first­hand glimpse at the San Juan’s restoration as it enters Glen Canyon.
