OAKHURST — Here’s a project worth working on. It’s a Community Work Day for the Oakhurst River Parkway Trail. Volunteers will meet for a community service project that’s ideal for scouts, church groups, and service clubs. Scheduled for Saturday, Jun. 11, the day starts at 8 a.m. at the Sierra Star parking lot on Road 426 (Crane Valley Road) in Oakhurst. Tools, gloves, snacks and water will be provided. Questions? Contact Sandy Brinley at (559) 683-7027.
Oakhurst River Parkway was built for the community, when citizens of Oakhurst and several state and federation organizations put plans into action in 1992 to establish this set of trails running alongide the Fresno River and its tributaries which pass through the town. “It is an ecological paradise in the midst of one of the Sierra Nevada’s most active tourism and residence areas close to Yosemite National Park, Bass Lake and other recreational opportunities.”
