Let’s learn from ancient timeless Mother Nature.
"Sutters Landing" was used as the city’s trash dump for many years but was eventually designated as a Regional Park, it deserves to be healed and restored into the "Jewel" of the American River Parkway! In our short lifetime let’s do our best to leave it “Better than We Found it!” For example, let’s restore habitat so our state bird, the California Quail can again thrive there. It’s just one of many wildlife we seldom see here now. Quail were here to greet the First People. There are still good sized coveys of quail and many other wildlife seen in other parts of the Parkway. It might take generations to make this a reality again at "Sutters Landing" but is worth whatever it takes.
Special thanks to Betsy Weiland and the "beautification" team who are keeping the park healthy and welcoming. Thanks also to the Park Rangers who are invaluable! There are others who have been coming to this area of the river for a long time and worked together to create Friends of the River Banks as a local group that welcomed and provided information and friendship over the years to make this area special. Thanks to all who have and still care for this park and our world!
Friends of the River.
