Placer Land Trust’s 160 Acre Acquisition

The Placer Land Trust announced this week, the acquisition of 160 acres of land along the North Fork of the American River, completing a five-mile stretch of protected riverfront.

Thomas says “Protecting this property from development ensures that a five-mile stretch – from above the Colfax Iowa Hill Bridge downstream past Indian Creek and Shirttail Creek all the way to Yankee Jim’s Bridge – will remain wild and scenic, forever”.
