Connecting Community to Nature

We believe giving back to our Jackson Hole community is just as important as riding the rapids. We believe in sharing the love for the Snake River with our neighbors who might not have the chance to experience its wonders independently. In an effort to make the river accessible to a broader audience, we donate approximately 1,000 river trips every summer. These donated excursions are directed towards benefiting local private and public schools,the Wyoming Indian School, non-profit programs, and summer schools, allowing individuals to dip their toes in the thrill of the Snake River. It’s about creating memories and fostering a connection with nature for those who might not have had the chance otherwise.

Protecting the Places we Love

And it’s not just about getting wet and wild. We’re also serious about protecting the places we love. Beyond facilitating direct access to the river, Dave Hansen Whitewater extends its philanthropic reach by contributing financial support to safeguard the environment. We actively donate funds to support and protect the Bridger-Teton National Forest (BTNF) through partnerships with organizations like the Snake River Fund, Grand Teton Association, and Teton County Parks and Recreation. This dual approach of providing both tangible experiences and financial resources underscores our dedication to enhancing the well-being of the community and preserving the natural wonders that make Jackson Hole a unique and cherished locale.
