3) Working with the U.S. Forest Service and the Sac-Sierra Chapter of Trout Unlimited to implement a grant from the Nevada-Placer RAC (Resource Allocation Committee) to improve signage on the two wild trout and wild and scenic rivers within our watershed (the North Fork American River above Iowa Hill Bridge, and the Rubicon River from Ralston Afterbay (Oxbow Reservoir) upstream to Hell Hole Reservoir.

4) Working with the U.S. Forest Service and other agencies and nonprofits to reduce the impacts of illegal dumping in the watershed.
