Salmon Falls Acquisition Completes American River Trail Corridor


http://arconservancy.org

February 2009--It took 20 years but the last of the sixteen river front parcels has been acquired along the South Fork American River to accommodate a new 20 mile trail system from Hwy 49 to the Folsom Lake State Recreation Area. The final trailhead acquisition was acquired in January, 2009 from Larry and Judy Klein. ARC is now working with the BLM and State Department of Parks and Recreation to complete the design and environmental documentation required before trail construction can begin. To learn more about the American River Trails Campaign and the American River Trail Corridor please see the spring issue of the American River Conservancy's Newsletter, The Current.

The American River Conservancy has been successful in the protection of over 10,700 acres of native fisheries, wildlife habitat, woodlands, and endangered species habitat since 1989. Thank you to all of our supporters and volunteers over the years who have helped make this achievement possible!
