Mile Stewards

In 1993, the Parkway Foundation founded the “Adopt-the-Parkway” initiative. “Mile Stewards” adopt each of the 23 miles of Parkway along both banks of the river.

There are two types of Mile Stewards – volunteer and financial. Both are recognized on a Parkway sign located along the paved bike trail of “their” mile. There are 46 Volunteer Mile Stewards and 46 Financial Mile Stewards along the Parkway.

What’s Involved?
Volunteer Mile Stewards make a two-year commitment to serve at least 20 volunteer hours on their mile each quarter. Stewards complete clean-up, trail maintenance, weed removal, and report any issues on their mile.

Financial Mile Stewards/Sponsors make a two-year commitment to contribute $1,500 per year. This contribution covers the hard costs of the volunteer mile stewardship (volunteer coordination, tools, and equipment, for example) that includes trash removal, invasive plant management, and trail maintenance.

This program allows individuals, businesses, and organizations to have a close, personal stake in the well-being of the Parkway. Mile Stewards take on the challenge of cleaning and conserving the American River Parkway that so many love and use. Each year, Volunteer Mile Stewards provide 3500+ hours of service and remove thousands of pounds of garbage from the Parkway!
