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. Grab a paddle, hop into a big yellow raft, and get ready for some wet, wild and adventurous fun on the South Fork of the American River, near Sacramento.

Don’t let names like Meatgrinder, Troublemaker, Satan’s Cesspool and Dead Man’s Drop scare you; the South Fork of the American River offers some of the most exciting Class III whitewater in California, but it’s still perfect for beginners, families and anyone who just wants a day out paddling in the California sunshine.

O.A.R.S. South Fork American River rafting trips through the rolling Sierra Foothills offer the perfect way to cool off on a warm California day. Whether you’re new to rafting and just want to “get your feet wet,” or you just don’t have time to fit a multi-day adventure trip into your schedule, one of O.A.R.S. rafting trip options will surely be the perfect choice.

About an hour from Sacramento, and just an hour-and-a-half from Lake Tahoe, rafting the South Fork American River is a quick and relatively easy option for an exciting family or group adventure. Whether paddling through thrilling rapids or swimming alongside the raft, lots of splashy good times are guaranteed.

Through the generosity of O.A.R.S., this amazing one-day trip is offered at a reduced price of $100 per person (more than 25 percent off the regular price). And, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Foothill Conservancy’s efforts to protect the Mokelumne River. Children and youth are welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult.

Rafters must be at least 7 years old. Event liability release forms must be completed and signed prior to participating. Rafters under age 18 must have their releases signed by a parent or guardian.

To register, call the Foothill Conservancy office, at 223-3508, or send an email to carolyn@foothillconservancy.org.
