The American River Parkway Foundation (ARPF) leads and inspires the community to conserve and nurture the American River Parkway as a unique, accessible resource for everyone to enjoy.
Our vision is for the Parkway to be one of the nation’s premier urban natural parks.
Over the past few years, ARPF supporters have increasingly requested that we take a more proactive role in voicing Parkway concerns. We agree.
Just this year, wildfire has scorched over 11 percent of the American River Parkway’s 4800 acres. We expect more. Additional concerns include water contamination, garbage, and visitor safety.
It is time to elevate the voice of the Parkway.
Watch and share our video Parkway in Peril.
We urge you to take notice of these important issues and contact your elected representatives to push for change.
Sacramento must enact an effective solution, and soon. The future of the Parkway depends upon it.
