The 3rd Annual Wood River Land Trust RiverFest was another fun-filled success. We’d like to send out a BIG THANKS to everyone who helped make this special day happen, from those of you who made donations or sponsored the event, to our wonderful volunteers, to the thousands of folks of all ages from all over the country who came to celebrate with us. You helped make it a positive day and helped countless friends and family create great memories in honor of our beloved Big Wood River.

We love our river. We love our community and we love having you as part of the Land Trust team. Together we’re protecting the places we love.

We’d also like to thank Judy Cahill for taking such great photos of fun from RiverFest 2017!
