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.
