My business depends on clean rivers that flow through wild places like the Owyhee Canyonlands. As owner of and guide for a rafting and kayaking outfitting business, Northwest Rafting Company, I have led rafting trips all over the world and can attest to the unique qualities and beauty of the Owyhee.
With activities like rafting, people come to southeastern Oregon and spend their money in stores, hotels, restaurants, and other outdoor recreation businesses. Protecting the Owyhee Canyonlands will allow me to grow my business and bring more visitors to the special part of Oregon. By safeguarding the Owyhee, we are investing in small businesses and the recreation economy.
