Enjoy Folsom's many walking and biking trails
On March 9 at the Friends' Board Meeting we were joined by Councilmember Sarah Aquino. She spoke to the Board about her goals and otherwise participated in the meeting. Great to have her leadership!

A Very Successful Cleanup of Diggings SiteA hardy group of members of the Friends of the Folsom Parkways dodged the rain and had a great trash cleanup project on Saturday, March 11, at the Chinese diggings site. Our group included FOFP member, Councilmember Sarah Aquino. The group found a number of abandoned homeless camps and removed over 30 bags of trash, pallets, old tents and rubbish in the morning’s work. It was wonderful to be in this special place and dust her off a bit, while we imagined what this location once was, and what a fabulous cultural interpretive site it could be for our city. Take a look at the event photos in the Gallery!
President Goss stresses "Showing Up"The Friends of Folsom Parkways exists to "show up."...Showing up doesn't mean you always get your way. But it does mean that your concerns and priorities get heard. ...We urge you to show up too...at community workshops...at commission meetings...at city council meetings. Voice your interests and concerns...always respectfully, and with facts and reason, not conjecture and hyperbole. We'll do the same on the community's behalf so that our amazing parkway system expands for our collective enjoyment, and to preserve nature in our city for decades to come. See the March 2023 Newsletter for the complete article.
