SW Rafts the Mighty Skagit

SW Teens and TOE Staff fully equipped for a fashionable trip down the Skagit River.

Thanks to the generous support of the Skagit Community Foundation, Foothills Toyota, and the George B. & Ruth Elizabeth Ferguson Advised Fund for making this wonderful opportunity possible for our Teens.

Our Sedro-Woolley Teens braved the frigid waters of the mighty Skagit River this Saturday. It started out with some anxiety about the rapids and the temperature of the water, but once we hit the first rapid and the water splashed over the front of the boat, all we heard were screams of excitement. Our journey spanned a good eight mile stretch of the river just outside of Marblemount where we saw Bald Eagles, Great Blue Herons, and even a Seagull. One of the river guides was a naturalist who had spent an internship with the Nooksak Salmon Enhancement Association and she taught us all about the different salmon in the river. Everyone had a blast, no one froze, and they all wanted to do it again and are excited for their next TOE trip.
