The Kings River Conservancy will host the 8th Annual Spring Fling on the Kings on Saturday, April 13 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Lapp River House in Sanger.

The public is invited to attend this free event and may purchase lunch for $10 which includes three tacos, rice, beans, and soda or water. Las Cabañas Taco Truck will be on site serving lunch. “Everybody loves tacos, and at $10 for a full meal, we hope everyone feels free to partake!” said John Gray, KRC board treasurer.

Beer, wine, and brownies will also be available to purchase. All proceeds benefit the Kings River Conservancy’s ongoing projects such as trail maintenance and public safety education.

The event will feature live music by QPOP Radio, kayak demonstrations, and boating safety. Fresno Wildlife will bring raptors and share knowledge about local wildlife.

Kings River Water District biologist Heidi Isner will be on hand to answer questions about fish and water mammals.

“With all this rain, the river is lapping at the bank, the hills are still green, and the wildflowers are going crazy,” said Deborah Lapp, board president of the Kings River Conservancy. “Bring a lawn chair and relax with friends and family, listen to music, check out the artwork, or play games by the river.”

The Kings River Conservancy will also hold a raffle to raise money for the river with prizes such as yard art, gift baskets, and more. Tickets are $1.00 each and may be purchased at the event or prior to the event by calling the Kings River Conservancy office. Lunch tickets may also be purchased prior to the event.

The Spring Fling will be held at the Lapp River House located at 26210 Elwood in Sanger located 30 minutes east of Fresno off Highway 180.

Blossom Trail Dental, Reedley Veterinary Hospital, and Valley Public Radio are sponsors of the event.

The Kings River Conservancy is a non-profit organization dedicated to encourage public safety and sound public conservation practices along the Kings River corridor from Pine Flat Dam to Highway 99. They participate in functions such as invasive species removal, a trout incubator house to release trout into the river, adding warden patrols and maintaining safe public access points along the river.
