American River Parkway Foundation is Grateful to all Supporters!

Dear Parkway Supporter,

The American River Parkway is a natural oasis that meanders through the urban core of Sacramento. The American River Parkway Foundation is proud to sponsor programs and organize volunteers to maintain and restore the Parkway. Each year brings greater challenges as Parkway use has grown to over 8 million user visits per year.

With your support through our membership drive the Foundation staff and volunteers have completed the following work thus far in 2014:

Removed 10 acres of invasive plants along the shore-line for enhanced boating, fishing and riparian restoration.

Maintained and cleared vegetation along the 23 miles of multi-purpose trail so equestrians, hikers and runners have access.

Planted 750 native plants to aid in the reforestation and challenge to exotic species.

Painted the bathrooms at Discovery Park after the new sewers were installed in a cooperative venture with the County.
