Wild & Scenic Forever

Watch PARC's new video "Wild & Scenic North Fork American River" below:

For more information on the proposed Auburn Dam, please see
"The Wild American" film below:

California Wild & Scenic designation will forever protect 16 miles of the North Fork American River from the Colfax-Iowa Hill Bridge to Upper Lake Clementine from being lost under a dam's reservoir.

The undammed free-flowing North Fork American River from its headwaters in the Sierra Nevada Mountains to Upper Lake Clementine includes accessible deep scenic canyons with a mosaic of diverse, unique foothill plant and wildlife communities. Visitors enjoy fishing, hiking, swimming, whitewater boating, nature study, recreational gold panning and much more.

Some places are unique and irreplaceable - worthy of protection. California Wild & Scenic designation would help ensure continued funding for the Auburn State Recreation Area while protecting its unique and irreplaceable natural resources.

Dreams can come true. Support PARC so we can work towards making the Wild & Scenic American River a reality. Some ways to support this work are to join PARC or buy our new guidebook. Sign up to receive our email newsletter. You can also contact your elected officials.

We will be including action items on this website soon, so check back for updates.

PARC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Some points you may want to include:

  • Auburn Dam is not needed to protect Sacramento from American River flooding.
  • The New Folsom Dam spillway and levee improvements will exceed Sacramento’s stated goal of 200 year flood protection.
  • Auburn Dam would destroy 48 miles of the American River canyons that are enjoyed by
    close to 1 million recreational visitors a year.
  • Auburn Dam would be built on earthquake faults. Water stored behind the dam could trigger a catastrophic quake flooding Sacramento.
  • Auburn Dam current estimated construction costs would be $6 to $10 BILLION DOLLARS.
