• American River Trailfest — June 8, 2014

    Enjoy live performances, great food, local wines & beers, silent and live auctions, and activities for kids to help generate funds for the South Fork American River Trail at this benefit for the American River Conservancy.

    2014 is the American River Conservancy’s 25th anniversary, which makes this a particularly special year for us. TrailFest donations will help fund several projects in 2014 and 2015. One such project is the completion of a trailhead and trail connection at Salmon Falls Ranch, another is the creation of a connector trail between Henningsen Lotus Park and Monroe Ridge Trail in partnership with Marshall Gold Discovery State Park and El Dorado County. The third major project is ongoing maintenance of existing trails that are part of the SFAR trail system. ARC has retained ownership to 3 parcels of land that provide trail connectivity between BLM-owned parcels.

    This year’s event will take place at EarthTrek’s Camp in River Park Village located on Hwy 49 in Lotus. For more information call (530) 621-1224.
