We love our supporters.  Through a variety of fundraisers, grants, and generous donations. SWPA is in the final stages of bringing a whitewater park to Salmon, Idaho. 
WE HAVE RECENTLY RECEIVED A 4-1 MATCH DONATION FOR UP TO  $800,000 DOLLARS!  So, we are moving forward with our Final Fundraising Campaign. 
Part of this fundraising campaign will be the establishment of a "Wave Park Founding Fish Wall" which will become part of the spectator seating and landscaping around the wave feature.  The wall will consist of bronze fish mounted to the boulder landscaping and will be a variety of sizes and fish types that correspond to donor sponsorship levels.  Please check back often for sample bronze fish photos and artist rendering of the new whitewater park.  
Thank you all for your continued support.

What a great turnout yet again.  This New Years celebration has turned into a celebration of not only rivers but the snow that feeds them and the amazing opportunities we have in the outdoors.  Thanks again to $$$$$$ for co-sponsoring this event.  Odd Fellows Bakery pizza, Bertram's Brewery Brew, great assortment of films, door prizes, raffles and a Wave Park Project Update.  The after-party was hosted by The Owl Club.  Thanks so much to all of our volunteers and sponsors.  We'll see you next year!
