Join your Shenandoah Riverkeeper and its partners—the U.S. Forest Service, Corazón Latino, Hispanic Access Foundation, North Bay Adventure, Park Rx America and a diverse community of friends and family on July 22 for a celebration of the Shenandoah River, Wild & Scenic Rivers, and Latino Conservation Week!

This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone to come together and demonstrate their enjoyment of nature and passion for conservation, with a special focus on the unique perspectives of Latinos and other diverse communities and cultures of our region. Educational booths and displays will help festival goers engage in our human connection to the environment and will shine a spotlight on the commitment of Latino communities in conservation. Dual-language materials and staff will be available on site to help participants with a Spanish-language preference.

For many, caring for the environment grows out of joyful, shared experiences in nature. RioPalooza is giving everyone the chance to get out on, in, and even under the water of the Shenandoah River, together!

RioPalooza will take place at the Low-Water Bridge Campground, Bentonville VA, an easy 80-minute drive from Washington, D.C.

The suggested donation for RioPalooza is just $20 per family of four. Every attendee will need to preregister for the event at the link below. You may pay the suggested donation via credit card while registering online, or by cash on the day of the event. Prepayment in full using online registration will secure your seat (and up to three additional family members) for the raft trip, up to a limit of the first sixty people registering.

RioPalooza is being sponsored and underwritten by the Potomac Riverkeeper Network, Low Water Bridge Campground, Downriver Canoe Company, USDA Forest Service, Corazón Latino, Hispanic Access Foundation, Park Rx America and NorthBay Adventure!
