Sutter’s Fort SHP is well-known for its historic structures and artifacts, but it is also an important community resource, providing open space, nature and recreational opportunities for those who live, work and visit Midtown.  As the nonprofit partner for Sutter’s Fort SHP, we work to increase community access to the public park grounds as well as the historic structures.

Here are some of the upcoming events we’ve planned for the coming months:
