September’s heat wave has us all heading straight to the river! At least the rivers that have water, the South Fork American River has guaranteed flows Saturday and Sundays after Labor Day and Saturdays beginning in October. Gather your river gear or call your favorite outfitter and get on the water. After you are off the river stop by your favorite eatery or winery for delicious food and drink. There are several activities in and on the river in September. Saturday September 12th and 13th join Friends of the River for the annual Gear Swap at Henningsen-Lotus Park. Saturday September 19th partner with the American River Conservancy for the Great Sierra River Clean up. September 19th and 20th enjoy the Annual American River Music Festival.
