Tuesday, February 27th from 10am – 2pm

Join the American River Conservancy near Salmon Falls Ranch for a day of trail work as we continue to smooth out rough edges, remove barriers, post interpretive signs and create clearer marked paths for use. If we can procure enough locally sourced native oak acorns in time, we will be doing some planting around the parking lot.

We anticipate opening this new multi-use public trail and trailhead soon!

For more information and to sign up, call (530) 621-1224 or email Taylor Faye at stewardship@arconservancy.org.

Scott Vail, ARC Board member and firefighter, will lead a hike to a wildfire that burned on both sides of the South Fork of the American River this summer. During the hike Scott will discuss fire behavior, fire-fighting in the wildland environment, fire ecology, and living with fire in El Dorado County using the recent fire to provide examples and stimulate discussion. This will be an intermediate hike with gentle slopes of 5 to 6 miles from the Cronan Ranch Parking lot to Norton Ravine. Responsible teen+ welcome.

Contact ARC to sign up and for meeting location (Pilot Hill area).
