American River Conservancy offers Epic Sierra Adventure

Tribune staff report

People have one more week to sign up for a 14-day Epic Sierra Adventures summer trip that's geared toward high school youth and organized by the American River Conservancy.

The program introduces teens to a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities and teaches minimum impact practices. Trips start in Coloma on the banks of the South Fork American River and end with a three-day backpack trip in Yosemite National Park.

Participants will paddle the American River, Lake Tahoe and Mono Lake and explore the different biomes of the Central Sierra on foot. They also contribute 12-15 hours of volunteer service at different sites visited throughout the adventure.

For more information visit or or call the American River Conservancy at 530-621-1224.
