The mission of the American River Water Education Center is to increase the public’s knowledge of the American River watershed, both the natural features and human interactions within the watershed. Emphasis is placed on increasing the public’s understanding of the water cycle and watersheds, how individuals can actively participate in resource conservation, and on Folsom Dam’s multiple roles in meeting the needs of urban, industrial, agricultural and natural systems.
Facility is open to the general public and adjacent to the American River Parkway. The schoolhouse, amphitheater & picnic grounds are available for group meetings, workshops and other water related gatherings. Facility reservations upon request. Accessibility access is available.
Our center relies on a committed group of volunteers. Greeters, activity presenters, center & garden guides, special events, along with exhibit & program development are some of the volunteer opportunities available.
