COVID-19 Considerations:

On the River
The launch times are oriented so that we can have the ramps and river to ourselves without having to navigate other boats. Each trip is listed as private to provide the best interactions with you and your group. In a modern Covid-19 world, this ensures that you will not come into contact with other groups.

At Camp
Hand washing station with running water and soap will be available along with hand sanitizer.

Operations
All guides will be required to wear face masks while interacting with guests during transport and on the river. We will respectfully ask that each guest come prepared with their own face covering to be worn while they are in proximity to the staff. Once at camp, you are able to remove your face mask, but still maintain a social distance (6 feet) from guides, Teton Raptor Center staff, and birds.

Transportation
Guests will meet at the Wilson boat launch and leave their vehicle parked in a designated location. The vehicle will then be shuttled to Tipi Camp so that guests may depart directly from camp following their adventure. Shuttle transporters will wear masks and gloves and thoroughly sanitize all surfaces touched during transport. You will be asked to sign this Vehicle Shuttle Release prior to departing for the boat launch.
