In May 2019 the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) approved a $176,000 grant for site improvements at Camp Pollock. The WCB-funded renovations include restoration of over an acre of native plants, installation of educational signs, water-efficient landscaping, parking lot improvements, and enhanced public access. SVC has contracted with landscape architects at ICF to design the site plans and with the Sacramento Regional Conservation Corps Education and Workforce Training Program to complete a portion of the site improvements.
You can help contribute to this exciting project. Sign up to volunteer for native garden plantings, dedicate a new picnic table, or even sponsor the Natural Playscape Installment. Renovations are tentatively scheduled to begin in June 2020, but plenty of help is always needed in the meantime.
The Lower American River Conservancy Program is administered by WCB, and was created by AB1716 to provide a state partner to work cooperatively with local agencies and nonprofit organizations. The goal of the Program is to help fund projects and provide grants to restore, enhance, interpret, protect and improve public access to the Parkway’s natural, recreational, educational and cultural resources.
