On Sunday, August 10, Foothill Conservancy will hold a special one-day Mokelumne River conservation benefit raft trip on the South Fork of the American River. The trip is made possible due to the generosity of O.A.R.S. of Angels Camp, Calaveras County's family-owned and operated rafting outfitter.
All proceeds from the trip will benefit Foothill Conservancy's Mokelumne River conservation efforts, which include not only securing Wild and Scenic protection for the river, but salmon and steelhead restoration, smart water planning for our region's future, and much more.
The cost for this all-day adventure is $100 per person, more than a 25 percent discount from the regular Sunday price. Children and youth are welcome, minimum age 7 years.
This is a great way to cool off on a hot summer day with family and friends while helping to protect and restore the beautiful river in your own back yard!
O.A.R.S. is a worldwide leader in the adventure travel industry, with well-trained guides and top-notch equipment. That will ensure your trip and lunch on the river are fun and unforgettable. Here's what they say about the trip: The South Fork of the American River offers some of the most exciting Class III whitewater in California and is perfect for beginners, families and anyone who just wants a day out paddling in the California sunshine.
