As part of ISF’s “Circle Around the Sun” series of tours, all are invited to join the Institute for Sustainable Forestry (ISF) for a river float tour of the South Fork of the Eel River from Tooby Park to Sylvandale.

Bring your own canoe, kayak or suitable floatation boat and PFD (personal floatation device, i.e. life jacket). Please wear good river walking shoes, bring your own water, hat, sunscreen and a lunch. The swimming and snorkeling may be excellent in the cool waters of the Eel River. Meet at parking lot at Tooby Park, 934 Sprowl Creek Road, Garberville at 9 AM, Sunday May 20, 2018. Shuttles will return from Sylvandale beach just off the intersection of Hooker Creek Road and Cal Highway 254 at US 101 by 4 or 5 PM when the float ends.

There may be extra boats to share or borrow. Pease contact ISF early with available extra boats or seats within your boat to arrange for enough boats for everyone who wants to come.
