Every donation has a ripple effect of impact on the river.

We invite you to join us in protecting the priceless asset represented by the American River and Parkway. It is SARA's belief that one of the most important contributions we can make to the Parkway is to grow our membership - to enhance our voice to a level that cannot possibly be ignored by the elected stewards of the Parkway.

We welcome one-time non-membership donations as well.
