The Sacramento River Recreational and Public Access Guide (RecWeb) was developed by the Geographical Information Center at California State University, Chico (GIC). The GIC compiled most of the maps and aerial photography used in the atlas and set up the GIS server. The GIC project manager was Jason Schwenkler.
Beau Smith from MC2 Design Group of Chico, California, designed & produced the Internet site.
Most of the Gallery photography was taken by Geoff Fricker, a professional photographer and photography instructor at Butte Community College in Oroville, California.
This is an interactive web site highlighting recreational opportunities on the Sacramento River. The site was developed in an effort to provide the public with access information on public lands along or adjacent to the river.
The site is web based and also uses geographical information systems (GIS) technology via Arc Internet Map Server. ArcIMS is a product of ESRI of Redlands, California.
While it takes little to keep us online, it takes money to keep this access guide up to date. After our initial funding source was eliminated during the recent recession, the GIC has had to rely on a number of funding sources for support and to help us grow the site.

A Great Valley Center grant provided funding to help with the Colusa to Suisun Bay extension.
The Sacramento River Conservation Area Forum and the California Department of Boating and Waterways helped with second year maintenance of the site.

While this site uses the most accurate and up-to-date property information taken from county assessors parcel maps, it must be understood that some of the information included may not have been updated and that errors do exist. In addition, property boundaries along the Sacramento River are often difficult to determine as the river is constantly changing due to forces of nature. Therefore, neither the Geographical Information Center nor the California State University, Chico Research Foundation takes any responsibility for map content and accuracy. Members of the public intending to access public lands along the Sacramento River are encouraged to read "Public Access to Lands Along the Sacramento River", a featured article in the Issues and Education section of this website. We would appreciate any comments concerning errors as it helps to assure an accurate site.
