Here at the Leavenworth Outdoor Center, we believe in the triple bottom line—that businesses should focus on people and the planet, and then profits.
We feel it is our responsibility to engage in the local community to create a world that is worth playing in for generations to come! Our owner, Dave Johnson, has been very involved in the Leavenworth community since he first moved over 30 years ago. He cares deeply about the world that he plays in and taking care of those that love it too
Every year during the peak months of summer, thousands of visitors are drawn to the quaint Bavarian town of Leavenworth, Washington to experience all of its beauty. With temperatures peaking near 100 degrees at times, it is no surprise that tourists want to jump into the river
to cool off!
Due to the popularity of the area, regrettable amounts of waste accumulate in our river bottoms and shores from the thousands of beverages that are consumed on and near our waters.
The rivers through Leavenworth are home to salmon and their spawning grounds, and are also a viable resource to the local community. We must be diligent and educate our clients how to adequately pack for their float trips and to provide the necessary resources for proper disposal at all our guest check points.
As part of our commitment to “leave no trace” and to protect our rivers and mountains we organize two clean-up events annually. These events are open to the public. Stay tuned on our social media pages to join us in sweeping the waters and shores to clean up any waste left behind.
It is part of our company mission to leave no trace in which we are dedicated to ongoing parking lot clean up and recycling for not only our guests, but the community and those it serves as well.
Thank you for thinking of us as a partner in your fundraising efforts.
If your organization meets the qualifications and our donation committee selects your organization as a beneficiary, then you will receive two vouchers for rafting or stand-up paddle boarding. If rafting or SUPing are not your first two choices, you can use the amount on the vouchers towards any of the other activities we offer at the Leavenworth Outdoor Center.
