South Fork Kings River Cleanup

River Cleanup Objectives:
Please help us celebrate Spring Summer and Fall by cleaning up over 16 miles of river bank (from Boyden Cavern to Roads End where accessible) so that the river will be healthier and nroe visually pleasing. We select our clean-up dates to follow heavy use holiday weekends.
Inform participants on how we can all be better river stewards by practicing good habits that protect river quality, and habitat for the wild creatures that use the river and riparian corridors. ASssess the appearance of the river using visual 'snapshots' assessments. Bring your cameras to help us 'monitor' the appearace of the river and your fishing equipment too!
Besides the direct benefit of a cleaner river, the South Fork Kings River Cleanup Days provide opportunities for reminding everyone of the value of protecting their water resources.
By working in partnership with other organizations, local, state and federal agencies, and local businesses we can promote public awareness of the important role the South Fork Kings River Plays in our lives. We spend 2 nights/3 days camping, fishing, cleaning and enjoying the area.
We will be having a clean up on the North Fork American River at Iowa Hill Bridge as part of the Great Sierra River Clean Up on Sat. Sept 16... Contact Bill Templin for details.
Hope you all are doing well! I am happy to inform you that "The Arcade Creek Project: A Mosaic of Sustainability" is having an extremely successful festival run. We've only been in the festival circuit for just a few months and have already been accepted to 10 film festivals around the country!
However, what I'm most excited to tell you about is that our WORLD PREMIERE (the film's first public appearance) will be right here at the Sacramento Film and Music Festival! The event will take place at the Jean Runyon Theatre in the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium (1515 J Street, Sacramento) on Saturday, September 23 at 10:00 AM. The world premiere is every film's most important event, and of course, since you all are the reason the documentary became a success, we would love for you to attend.
