Eric Peach, PARC conservation chairman, says of a blessing that kicks off the American River Confluence Festival.In its 17th year, the festival, to be held Sunday at the American River Overlook Park in order to celebrate local canyons, has a couple highlights this year, said Eric Peach, Protect American River Canyons conservation chairman. This year's festival celebrates the restoration and re-opening of the four-mile river stretch between the North/Middle Fork Confluence to China Bar. "We're looking forward to this year's festival," Peach said."It has some common (flora and fauna) and some that you have to look a little harder to see," Peach said. The map also offers background, rules and regulation. "It's kind of a different twist," Peach said."Instead of trying to describe how to do everything, we thought, let's do a little enrichment here.We're getting more and more people who want to know about the natural history of the canyon." The map will be available at the festival for $5, or free to current or new PARC members, Peach said. Stan Padilla asks the river to bless us and guide us for the following year," Peach said.Recreational opportunities include a rock climbing wall â€" "You get the best view of the river from the top," Peach said â€" along with a canyon ecology hike, bike ride and run.The festival also includes a silent auction featuring inflatable kayaks, Peach said. Peach said everything the Confluence Festival has to offer has to do with encouraging an appreciation of local waterways. "It's written into our mission to promote safe, responsible recreational use of the canyon, and we're trying to fulfill our goals," he said."The recreation season is really starting now and people are starting to stick around, so it's a good chance to plan some river adventures with the information they gather with new friends they meet at the river festival," Peach said.
