CONSERVATION & ETHOS
Conservation, Adventure and Great Food
Conservation, Education and Adventure are the pillars Boundary Expeditions is built upon. We focus on organizing amazing river trips while treating mother nature with the utmost respect.
The Middle Fork of the Salmon river is largely considered the most prized wilderness river trip in North America, if not the world. At Boundary Expeditions, we take pride in utilizing a leave no trace ethic on the river and ensuring that our practices line up with our ecological values.
The earth is always making more people, but not making more rivers…You and many others will be camping, hiking, bathing and more on the river this summer. With a river corridor as special and pristine as the Middle Fork it is our job to maintain this through good stewardship of the land. We accomplish this in several ways:
- Sourcing eco friendly cleaning products for washing coolers, boats, and sleeping bags
- Recycling trip cardboards, plastics and cans
- Keeping all soaps and pollutants out of the river
- Avoiding camping on or near known archaeological sites
- Supporting salmon spawning, native fish and water quality on the Salmon River
- Using catch and release, single barbless hook policy when fishing
In alignment with our environmental ethos, Boundary also takes pride in our food sourcing and quality. We use local and organic foods whenever possible with a focus on whole, hearty and healthy foods on the river. You will enjoy gourmet meals prepared with love by our guide chefs. Our wild salmon is sourced from a sustainable outfit in Alaska, our red meats come from responsible Montana ranchers, where possible our vegetables are sourced locally in Idaho, and we start each day with delicious organic coffee roasted in Montana.
The Middle Fork is a sacred place in so many ways. From numerous historical and archaeological sites to natural hot springs to incredible fly fishing waters, when traveling with Boundary you will enjoy all of these places knowing we are doing all we can to minimize our ecological footprint.
