Watch this space for 2019 news! Big improvements in equipment and programs are in the offing!

The map below shows the new Sailing Center (lower left), the new Rowing Course (center), and the new Education and Research/Boating Instruction and Safety Center (lower right). Click on the map to see where the Forebay fits into the Oroville Dam/State Water Project system.

We are now a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization

and are working with state agencies to make these improvements to recreation, education, and economic development.

We are applying for Supplemental Benefit Fund monies this fall and are looking for matching funds to make the improvements mapped out above as well as purchase new equipment for our Outdoor Recreation and Education Programs.
