SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Finding fun, family-friendly events at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District’s 10 parks in California is easier now with a new events calendar on our website. The calendar announces all upcoming events that are open to the public.

“With several events happening at the start of 2012, we felt that this was a good way to start off the new year and introduce the calendar to the public,” said Jon Friedman, senior district park ranger. “There’s always something going on at our parks. We’ve got everything from Civil War reenactments to salmon festivals to movie nights under the stars in our open-air amphitheaters happening any given weekend. We hope the calendar makes these affordable events that much easier to find.”

The parks offer sites rich in California history, with outdoor recreation ranging from camping to fishing, boating, hiking and much more.
The Corps of Engineers is the nation’s largest provider of outdoor recreation, hosting more than 370 million visits per year at 421 lakes and river parks. For more information on Corps recreation opportunities visit http://www.corpslakes.us/.
