"This was the most beautiful campsite we have ever had. This canyon has so much to offer volunteers. The staff were a joy to work with and always willing to share information. The work is enjoyable and rewarding if you enjoy working with people. An added bonus was watching the golden eagles from fledglings through their early flights. Wildlife comes through the hatchery and even to your campsite… My greatest regret is our own inability to travel, because we miss the Rifle Falls Fish Hatchery family."
