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 in the Craig area. 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.


In 2021 we also sponsored a two-day, overnight Show Me Float down the Little Yampa Canyon, and in 2023 for the first time participants got hands-on experience releasing leafy biological control beetles on private property just upstream of the Yampa Valley Golf Course in Craig.


Below are a sampling of photographs from past Show Me Floats.
