The mission of the American River Parkway Foundation to support the preservation and enjoyment of the American River Parkway by fostering environmental education, stewardship and volunteer opportunities.
As a part of this mission we conduct the annual Great American River Clean Up.
Participation in the Great American River Clean Up is a real contribution to the health of the
Parkway and river. Removing trash and debris prevents pollutants from entering
the watershed, harming the wildlife, or creating hazards for recreational users.
Additionally, keeping the Parkway clean protects ocean life by preventing trash
from being washed downstream during the winter rains.
We need your support for this very worthy event.
