Result: 1,059 acres & 1.5 river miles protected

In August, 2013 the American River Conservancy completed the purchase of 1,059 acres of Cosumnes River canyon lands.  These purchased lands protect an additional 1.5 miles of river canyon from future residential development on the North and Main Forks of the Cosumnes River immediately east and west of Highway 49 in both El Dorado and Amador Counties, California.  The Cosumnes River is one of the last undammed river systems on the west slope of the Sierra Nevada.
