The mission of
the American River Parkway Foundation is to support the preservation, protection, enhancement,
and appreciation of the American River
Parkway by fostering environmental
stewardship, facilitating volunteer
opportunities, and funding and implementing
Parkway projects and programs.
As a part of this
mission we conduct the annual Great American
River Clean Up.
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.
