River through the Grand Canyon
The Colorado River through Grand Canyon is considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. You’ll experience exhilarating whitewater, float through calm stretches of magnificent canyon on oar-powered rafts, and go on rewarding hikes. This program includes an on-river service-learning component where you’ll work alongside scientists studying the Colorado River ecosystem.
Science service projects have included everything from monitoring endangered fish to removing invasive species. Each trip is unique because it is driven by scientists & project availability. Regardless of the project, you are guaranteed a hands-on opportunity to discover the wonders of Grand Canyon.
Each is unique and offers a different perspective of the Grand Canyon.

Lower Half: Pipe Creek to Diamond Creek
The lower half is dramatic in its scenery, rapids, and overall magnitude. Deer Creek Falls, Lava Falls rapid, and Havasu Canyon are waiting to be explored in these 137 miles of river. Participants hike in via the Bright Angel trail.
