Gardening, Volunteer Event
Low Water (Coloma to Greenwood) South Fork American River Clean Up
Mother Nature has done her part in washing down natural and unnatural debris from the shores of the South Fork American River; now it’s our turn to remove the trash! Raft some exciting Class III rapids and volunteer for one (or all!) of this year’s River Cleanups. Due to the nature of the South Fork American River cleanups, we ask that only volunteers with previous boating experience participate. Lunch will be provided for volunteers after the events. The corridor along the South Fork American River is very diverse, both in habitat types and wildlife species. 117 different bird species use this area throughout the year and plastic and sharp metal debris can hurt them, along with the fish and other aquatic wildlife in the river! Please help us keep our rivers clean so they can be a recreational resource for many more years to come. Note: If you and the family would like to help us keep our rivers pristine but do not have boating experience, please check out our September river clean up event The Great Sierra River Clean Up and sign up for it today! Tuesday, June 19th (morning)– Upper South Fork (Chili Bar Run) Thursday, July 19th (morning) – Lower South Fork (Salmon Falls/The Gorge) Wednesday, August 22nd (early afternoon) – Low Water Wednesday (Coloma to Greenwood) Please contact stewardship@arconservancy.org or (530) 621-1224 to RSVP for these cleanups or ask about details!
