CITIZEN ADVISORY GROUP FOR THE
SARA ADVISORY COUNCIL MISSION
SARA established an Advisory Council in 2006, consisting of individuals with exceptional talents and experience to assist SARA in dealing with 21st Century issues affecting the American River and Parkway. Areas of expertise include: environmental, water, habitat, legal, fund raising, promotion, management and government.
The purpose of the SARA Advisory Council is to advise the Board and the President, individually and as a group, on matters of concern that are within the scope of SARA's mission. In addition to being available for counsel, it is expected that Advisory Council members will initiate/introduce issues or matters of concern prompted by their own special knowledge, and attend SARA meetings when matters within their interest and expertise are on the agenda. Advisory Council members will serve for 2 years.
AMERICAN RIVER PARKWAY SAFETY COALITION
In an effort to improve communications between recreational parkway users and law enforcement, SARA took initiative as a founding member of the American River Parkway Safety Coalition. The Coalition offers rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of persons responsible for selected crimes committed on the bike trails, waterways and adjacent land from Discovery Park to Granite Bay, and encourages stiff penalties for persons convicted of crimes committed in these areas. The Coalition organization members contributing to the reward are Save the American River Association (SARA), Buffalo Chips Running Club, Sacramento Wheelmen, Sacramento Area Bicycle Advocates (SABA) River City Paddlers, Inc., and the Lake Natoma Community Task Force.
When a Parkway crime occurs and the Safety Coalition determines that a reward should be offered, SARA will post the reward notice.
