Wakamatsu Historical Tour- American River Conservancy

This is so cool....if you have not been up to the Wakamatsu property, here is a great chance to see it.

Join ARC trained docents for a firsthand look at the property recently acquired by ARC. This ranch is an interesting mosaic of springs, streams, wetlands, blue and live oak forest, sweeping vistas and prime agricultural soil. Ranch ponds and the small lake is a draw for wildlife, particularly migratory waterfowl during the winter and early spring. Along with its beauty, learn about the rich history of the Wakamatsu Tea and Silk Farm, the 1st Japanese Colony site established in America in 1869. Contact ARC to sign up and for meeting location (Gold Hill area). Register now.
Donations towards the Wakamatsu project encouraged.
