Work Hard and Play Harder

Broads return to continue restoration of one of the west’s last free-flowing rivers, the magical Escalante. Join Broads staff and botanists from Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument and Grand Staircase Escalante Partners staff for a week-long adventure: four days of hard, but rewarding work removing Russian olive, an invasive plant that threatens the riparian habitat, along with a day of hiking to fabulous Phipps Arch.

Escalante2013-2The level of activity is challenging to strenuous, as you will be bending, kneeling, using hand tools, and pulling tree branches, and using herbicides. A younger crew will follow us to “finish” the job with chainsaws. The results are truly gratifying.

Camping and Culinary Delights

This year we’ll have an easy backpack to our campsite several miles downstream of Highway 12, where camp culinary queen Ronni Egan will craft yummy breakfasts and dinners each day. Heavy gear will be transported by horseback, leaving us lighter packs of personal items to carry to camp along the river near Phipps Wash.

Help us restore the Escalante River while having an amazing canyon experience with a great gang of gals (and a few guys). It doesn’t get any better than this! Group size is limited to 12, so register now.

Please review our event cancellation policy.
