spring poppies along the American RiverRobin and Bill Center (longtime ARC supporters and Coloma river-front property owners) will lead this annual one-of-a-kind Poppy Walk. With glowing orange fields overlooking the crystal water of the South Fork of the American River, the stunning contrasts and vibrant colors are a sight few have the fortune of witnessing. Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity, sign up TODAY! The river trail is steep in places but has a good flat bed. Hiking to the flowers takes about 15-20 minutes. The river trail also has views of some of the earliest land that ARC protected around Triple Threat Rapid. Desserts, healthy snacks, and punch will await your return to the house. Please call ARC @530-621-1224 for meeting location (Coloma/Lotus area) and to sign up. Cost: $25 per person
