Show Me Floats
The YRLSP sponsors an annual “Show Me Float” to introduce interested stakeholders to the leafy spurge problem from a river perspective. Typically a one-day event, YRLSP volunteers provide the boats and gear for an instructive float down a local section of the Yampa River. The beauty of this often out-of-sight natural resource can be surprising, even to longtime residents, while the implications of the leafy spurge infestations along the way become clear. Below are some galleries of photographs from past Show Me Floats in the Craig area.
Unfortunately, our 2019 float was cancelled at the last moment due to atrocious weather, and then corona virus precautions derailed the 2020 float. We were more successful in 2021, with a two-day, overnight Show Me Float through the Little Yampa Canyon. Our 2022 one-day float from the Yampa River State Wildlife Area to Loudy Simpson Park in Craig was also a great success.
