Help PARC protect the American River
The price of free flowing rivers is constant vigilance. Every river needs organizations which serve as caretaker, advocate, and watchdog. PARC is one such organization dedicated to the North and Middle Forks of the American River. Volunteers can accomplish much, but there are always expenses. Your PARC membership and donations are essential to ensure that we can continue to educate the community and our community leaders to work for permanent river protection. Thank you for considering PARC as an organization worthy of your support.
The live link to donate through the Big Day of Giving website will be posted on this website on May 3rd.
