Fleet Feet welcomes back Protect American River Canyons (PARC ) as the beneficiary of the Blood, Sweat and Beers Trail Run.
Overview on PARC
Protect American River Canyons (PARC) is an Auburn-based grassroots educational group dedicated to the preservation of the wilderness, recreational, cultural, and historical resources of the North and Middle Forks of the American River and its canyons for all to responsibly care for and enjoy. PARC sponsors the Confluence Festival, outings and river cleanups. PARC makes public presentations, publishes the American River Guide Book and a seasonal newsletter, and remains alert to the political situation of the canyons. PARC is a member of the American River Coalition which coordinates American River lobbying efforts. The North and Middle forks of the American River flow west through the scenic canyons of the central Sierra Nevada to its confluence with the Sacramento River in California’s capital city. The river’s spacious canyons include nationally significant cultural and natural features that draw visitors from all over the world. The Auburn State Recreation Area (encompassing 48 river miles) stretches from Colfax on the North Fork and Foresthill on the Middle Fork to Auburn. It is the focus of PARC’s American River Guide Book, a 350 page resource guide to the canyons. The book is available through PARC or at bookstores.
