Did you see the ring around the sun?

If you were outside today, you may have noticed a giant ring around the sun. That ring is actually the reflection of ice crystals from high cirrus clouds, according to EarthSky.org

The ring was seen all over the area by News10 viewers, including Roseville and Stockton. Did you get a chance to see it?

Celebrate a Decade of Building Trails with Music and BBQ at the American River TrailFest

 

In 2004, the American River Conservancy embarked on a campaign to build the first multi-use recreational trail system along the South Fork American River. Over the past decade with support from the local community and public agencies, ARC has preserved nearly 3,000 thousand of acres of open space and built over 20 miles of hiking, biking and equestrian trails near the South Fork.

On Sunday, June 9th, the American River Conservancy hosts the tenth annual American River TrailFest at Earthtrek Expeditions in Lotus, CA. TrailFest is a family-friendly event that features live music, BBQ dinner, microbreweries and local wineries, live and silent auctions, and Kids’ Zone activity tent. This year, the event features a line-up of talented musicians headlined by local favorites, The Rusty Buckets.

American River Conservancy Hosts Open House

American River Conservancy Hosts Open House

A new exhibit, “Watersheds: Human Connections,” is now on display at the American River Nature Center. Located in Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park in Coloma, CA the Nature Center is the education hub of the American River Conservancy (ARC). On Friday, April 12th from 1 to 3 pm, ARC invites the public to attend an open house that showcases the new permanent exhibit.

Funded by a Proposition 84 grant from the Sierra Nevada Conservancy, the watershed exhibit uses interpretive panels and interactive displays to educate visitors on California’s waterscape. A 3-D model of the American and Cosumnes River watersheds illustrates the infrastructure – dams, hydroelectric facilities, and canals that are important components in moving water from its source to its users. A large interactive watershed table demonstrates the impact moving water has on a landscape or how erosion impacts a diversity of habitats.
