Starting in Jackson, CA, this 600-mile expedition will follow the Mokelumne River from several peaks forming its headwaters, down through the foothills & across the California Delta before heading out beneath the Golden Gate Bridge to the Pacific Ocean.

Multiple sports will be utilized including bikepacking, mountain climbing, backpacking, whitewater kayaking, canyoneering, whitewater rafting and sea kayaking. From San Francisco, it’s back on bikes across the Golden Gate and Richmond-San Rafael bridges and through the Oakland hills to the finish in Jackson.

Why I chose Foothill Conservancy for this Fundraising Expedition:
I wanted this fundraiser to be for an organization that matched up closely with the Mokelumne River, Source to the Sea expedition and choosing the Foothill Conservancy was an easy & logical choice! I am grateful for their efforts to get the Mokelumne River designated as a California Wild & Scenic River, as well as their ongoing role in protecting the Mokelumne Watershed.
