This Saturday, June 4th, marks National Trails Day! What better way to celebrate than with a volunteer day and natural showcase of one of Fresno's hidden gems?

Camp Pashayan is located immediately east of Highway 99 off Herndon and Weber Avenue and features nearly a mile of river bank that provides great opportunities for picnics, bird watching, and fishing.

Join San Joaquin River Parkway and Conservation Trust's AmeriCorps Watershed Stewards Program members as they lead a morning of activities. A River Steward is a trained volunteer who is instrumental in maintaining the San Joaquin River Parkway. River Stewards are the driving force of the River Parkway Trust’s Land Stewardship programs, which include habitat restoration, removal of invasive exotic plants, trail maintenance, and river cleanups.

Activities will begin with an 8:00am guided nature walk followed by invasive weed removal and river cleanup. Additionally, there will be a geocache hunt as well as a macroinvertibrate presentation and fish print making for kids. A light brunch, water, and all tools will be provided.

All groups or individuals are welcome!

 This event will run from 8:00am until 12:30pm and is suitable for all ages. Volunteers under 18 must bring a liability waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.

Please dress for a day outdoors by wearing sturdy footwear and plenty of sun protection.

To get there from Fresno:
Take Highway 99 north and Exit Herndon Ave.
Turn right (east) onto herndon avenue.
After the intersection turn left (north) onto Weber Avenue.
Follow Weber all the way until it ends at the Camp Pashayan gate.
