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. Kerry Thomas with the Placer Land Trust says a couple in Weimar donated the property valued at $160 to $175 thousand dollars.
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”.
The land, purchased with help from Emigrant Trails Greenway Trust.
