To restore Ti’lomikh Falls on the Rogue River in Gold Hill as a regional gathering place
that reminds us that we are each—in our own way—"people of the river"
To make the Gold Hill Whitewater Park accessible to more people in a variety of watercraft
by modifying the hazardous rapids in the channel known as Mugger’s Alley
To support events and programs including
the Salmon Ceremony, King of the Rogue Race, and Find Yourself on the Water
To create a venue worthy of holding the 2028 Olympic Whitewater events
The goal is to build our whitewater park and ultimately bring the 2028 Olympic Whitewater Events to Gold Hill. (We have an Olympic Slalom course designed and engineered. Meanwhile, LA has no whitewater...)
