The American River and its adjoining parkway are widely considered to be among the most important resources in defining what makes Sacramento a high quality community. The rich and diverse wildlife reflect strong protection efforts by agencies, nonprofit organizations, businesses and individuals. The American River Salmon Festival serves to help people develop a better understanding and appreciation for the river and its connection to their watershed, and the role they can play to protect these resources. It provides an opportunity for the public to celebrate the strong salmon run on this river.

Staff from BLM's Folsom Field Office provided information about BLM, including recreational opportunities on public lands, from its booth at the festival:Visitors seek Natural Resources information at the BLM booth
