Weber River Symposium “Confluence 2024”

Our friends at Weber River Partnership have been working hard to prepare and are excited to present the annual Weber River Watershed Symposium at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center on January 9th and 10th. Check it out now!

River Guide Training on the Weber River starts this Friday, May 12th in Henefer!

This is a great opportunity to learn some new river skills and start gaining experience navigating whitewater rivers! People sign up for this 6-day course for a variety of reasons.  Some want to work as river guides, and some just want to learn for personal reasons, such as scout leaders, moms, and teenagers who want to go on river trips with their friends and family and want to have some idea of what they are doing. Optional Basic First Aid and CPR certifications are offered as part of the course for an added $65 fee. It’s going to be a great year to be out on the river!

Weber River Clean Up, June 9, 2018 from 10:00 – 2:00

There is a lot of garbage that gets accidentally lost into the Weber River.  The main cause of this problem is that people are not “Rigging to Flip”, are wearing flip-flops, and are floating on flimsy flotation devices that are not meant to handle the rough terrain of the Weber River, and often pop. The…
