The family-friendly festival is also a celebration of the rivers of the Gunnison Valley and helps raise money for improvements to the Whitewater Park itself: Proposals on the 2010 Master Plan include two new freestyle kayak features, improvements to the put-in area and surrounding trails, and a webcam. Gunnison Valley is home to three big rivers the Gunnison, the Taylor, and the East River, says Mauldin. Were hoping to bring attention to the importance of the watershed itself as a resource and encourage recreation in and around the whole valley.
