The American River Parkway is 4,800 acres of public land along 23 miles of river! With over 40 species of fish, hundreds of plant species, and 220 species of mammals, the American River Parkway is an important natural oasis in our growing metropolitan area. We will be doing a river cleanup and removing litter and debris at a site on the parkway.

Event Details: Join fellow Yalies at the River District for a Clean-Up on the Parkway! Participate in citizen science by helping us document the biodiversity of our parks using iNaturalist. During the last 30 minutes of the clean-up, use your smartphone to take pictures and add them to our project. Remember to download the iNaturalist app and create an account before you join the clean-up.
