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 sample photographs from past Show Me Floats in the Craig area.
Unfortunately, events in 2019 and 2020 conspired to cancel the Show Me Floats in those years, each of which was planned as a two-day trip down the Little Yampa Canyon. (Our 2019 float was cancelled at the last moment due to atrocious weather, and corona virus precautions derailed the 2020 float.)
However, the third try was the charm, and the 2021 two-day Show Me Float through the Little Yampa Canyon was a success. More photos from Kent Vertrees to be added soon!
