“On the Rocks” series presents rafting in the Grand Canyon.

January 19, 2016

The presentation, the first in the 2016 “On the Rocks” series, is scheduled Monday, Jan. 25 at 3:45 p.m. in Montana Western’s Block Hall, room 311.

Morehouse will present “Rafting in the Grand Canyon,” a lecture based on his experiences from 30 years of whitewater rowing and 10 trips down the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon.  

Retiring from the U. S. Bureau of Reclamation in 2007, Morehouse spent 36 years as a park ranger. He started his career with the National Park Service at Lassen Volcanic National Park in northern California as a ski ranger and backcountry ranger. He transferred to Dillon in 1980 to be on the Lewis and Clark Trail. 

He holds a Bachelor of Science in natural heritage and Bachelor of Arts in health science from Montana Western. 

Morehouse will also explain how to apply for and obtain a river permit, as well as how to plan a trip and knowing what to expect while rafting the 226 miles of river through the Grand Canyon.

“On the Rocks” is a lecture series presented by the environmental sciences department and the Montana Western Foundation.
