RCWA – American River Cleanup @ Sunrise Bridge North

We are need to go back to this beautiful section of the American River Parkway to clean many abandoned camps, along steep banks near the Sunrise Bridge, that CoParks have already been through cleaning with the bobcat. We cleaned under the bridge back on 7/9/2023 (https://youtu.be/w4BYBgTg__k). That area needs a little work, but our focus will be working along many trails and hidden areas under thick a tree canopy nearby.
Free parking passes will be available at Sacramento Bar Park river access. We will then hike a short distance to our cleanup site under the bridge. (Directions: Sunrise Blvd, west on Fair Oaks then south on Pennsylvania Ave at River Rat Raft Rentals. This road will take you down to the parkway parking lot)
This area of the river is truly beautiful and an after cleanup dip will refresh us all. Maybe a picnic would be nice.
The areas on the hill will range in difficulty from moderate to hard, and may not be suitable for children under the age of 16, but here will be something for almost everyone in the beautiful areas along the river and picnic areas nearby. Children must be supervised by an adult.
We will provide bags, but please bring along your sturdy footwear, grabbers, buckets, and gloves – a limited number of loaner buckets and grabbers may be available. If there is water in the creek, participants will be required to wear rain boots or waders if they intend to get into the water. Entry into any waters is always optional.
As with all events shared on our Page, participation is performed solely at your own risk. Please place safety FIRST and do only what you feel comfortable doing. Moreover, participants will be required to sign a Release and Waiver form if they have not done so previously.
Overall, be safe, have fun and get some “Exercise with a Purpose”!, as Bill Templin says. Thank you! 💚
