This is an annual event hosted by the Oakhurst River Parkway, and it’s really needed this year, due to all the trash from the flooding.
Willing volunteers are invited to meet on Saturday, Sept. 9, at 9 a.m. in the parking lot in front of the Sierra Star, 49165 Road 426, in Oakhurst.
Snacks, drinks, tools and bags are provided. Everyone is invite to join family and friends to spend time sprucing up the neighborhood for the benefit of all to enjoy. For more information: Sandy Brinley (559) 642-7316.
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 alongside 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.”
Anytime, you can visit the Oakhurst River Parkway Trail website for a handy ECO-WALK checklist. Study it in advance of your visit or print it and bring it with you. “We think you’ll be surprised at how many of our valued creatures you already know about!”
