Join us for a colorful fall float of the Boise River from near Parma to the Snake River.  This ~11 mile section of the river is rated Class I+ / II- depending on whether or not several small diversion wiers are portaged or run.  Participants need PFDs and small craft (such as a canoe or inflatable kayak) and experience making eddy turns, ferrying, and avoiding riverbank snags.  The dirt road launch and take out are about 45 miles from Boise and are accessible to passenger cars.  The trip is limited to 12 craft.  It's hunting season; please bring visible headgear (a brightly colored hat or one decorated with flagging tape). No dogs, please.
