About ARC

Who We Are: Since 1989, the American River Conservancy (ARC) has been preserving rivers and land for life. As a non-profit community organization in the central Sierra Nevada foothills, we work to preserve natural areas and cultural resources and build an enduring ethic of care, building a sustainable future for humans in harmony with nature.

Where We Work: The American River Conservancy is headquartered at the historic Kane House in Marshall Gold Discovery Park, in Coloma, California.

Current Projects

Salmon Falls Ranch Trailhead Project: Construction began September, 2016! This Facility will include hiking, mountain bicycling and equestrians, as well as general day-use public recreation associated with trails and wildlife viewing.

American River Headwaters Restoration Project: We envision an upper American River watershed of spectacular beauty and biodiversity, with healthy forests that are resilient to naturally occurring wildfire, rivers and streams that support an abundance of native fish, and a network of trails that enable the public to enjoy the scenic and ecological richness of this property.
