This year the Sacramento Area Creeks Council honored Friends of the River Banks for their ongoing work to promote, protect and restore Sutter's Landing Park and the surrounding lower American River Parkway. A beautiful glass award and check were given to FORB to help the groups ongoing efforts. Robert Sewell spoke for FORB and told the story of how a group of midtown neighbors came together over 11 years ago to introduce the public to nature here at Sacramento's gateway to the American River Parkway. FORB continues to hold events on the second Saturday of each month and participates in many other efforts related to Sutter's Landing Park and the Parkway.
Come out to help with Creek Week activities, other ongoing cleanup efforts and to appreciate another spring at Sutter's Landing Park. FORB's scheduled event "Bugs" will be held in May.
