River Ranger Rendezvous

The River Ranger Rendezvous, hosted by River Management Society, is an annual workshop geared toward river rangers responsible for the day-to-day management of our nation’s rivers. The workshop is an opportunity for participants to share leadership and management ideas, build skills related to their everyday job duties, and connect with other river rangers.

Join us Sep. 8-13, 2024 on Desolation Canyon (Green River, UT)!

This year, the BLM Price Field Office has volunteered to host the River Ranger Rendezvous in Desolation Canyon on Utah's Green River, one of the premier multiday whitewater river trips in the United States.
