“The mission of the American River Parkway Foundation is to foster environmental stewardship, facilitate volunteer opportunities and fund projects and programs on the American River Parkway that support the preservation, protection, enhancement and appreciation of the parkway natural resources.”
In our area, Friends of Grant Park will be participating beginning at Sutter’s Landing Park (the north end of 28th Street) at 9:00AM. This is a fabulous way to teach your children about the impact our actions have on the environment AND offer them some community service experience! The Great American River Clean Up is open to any and all ages, however participants under the age of 18 will need to come prepared with a consent form signed by their parents. You can click here to get to the volunteer registration form.
Friends of Grant Park suggest, “To make the day more enjoyable, please be on time, leave the dogs at home, and bring gloves, sunblock, mosquito repellent, drinking water, and a snack. You also might want to wear a hat, long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes.”
