Save the American River Assosication
Rescue Our Regional Parks
Protect the American River Parkway!
A message from the Grassroots Working Group


The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors needs to hear from you RIGHT NOW.

Due to the budget crisis, the Sacramento County Regional Parks Department was dismantled in June of this year. The Department's responsibilities, projects, and day-to-day operations have been farmed out to other County departments.

In the blink of an eye, a fifty-two year tradition of building recreational opportunities and nature experiences is gone in Sacramento County.

Farmers and Consumer Groups File Lawsuit Challenging Genetically Engineered Alfalfa Approval PDF Print E-mail

Attorneys for the Center for Food Safety (CFS) and Earthjustice filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), arguing that the agency’s recent unrestricted approval of genetically engineered (GE), “Roundup Ready” Alfalfa was unlawful.  The GE crop is engineered to be immune to the herbicide glyphosate, which Monsanto markets as Roundup.  USDA data show that 93% of all the alfalfa planted by farmers in the U.S. is grown without the use of any herbicides.  With the full deregulation of GE alfalfa, USDA estimates that up to 23 million more pounds of toxic herbicides will be released into the environment each year.
