2011 American River Trailfest: June 13thPosted June 11, 2011 by Malina
It’s trailfest time! And you know what that means. Yours truly will be covered in ashes, cornhusks and butter as I help the fantastic John M of Cafe Mahjaic with his famous grilled corn! But more importantly of course, the trailfest raises funds for the American River Conservancy, which has preserved thousands of acres of property in these here parts for sport, relaxation, and preservation. One of their most notable projects is of course the American River Trail, which allows hikers, cyclists, and horse riders to enjoy the beauty of the South Fork of the American River corridor all the way from the Coloma-Lotus Valley to Folsom Lake.
Trailfest supports these efforts by raising money to acquire more land, build and maintain trails, and keep the office open! The June 13, 2011 event begins at 5pm and goes until 10pm. Your ticket gets you a tasty dinner (including that awesome corn!), a couple drinks from local wineries and brewries, and a raging dance party! Silent auction items include jewelry, massage, fly-fishing ties, local B&B and restaurant certificates, and even–are you ready for this?–a “giant push pin” and a “camel saddle.” Don’t ask me, I can’t explain. I just saw it on the list.
