Friends of the Folsom Powerhouse Association, a non-profit, 501(c)3 public education corporation, is comprised of dedicated volunteers working with California State Parks to protect, preserve, interpret, and provide education to others about the Historic Folsom Powerhouse and the role it played in early California history. Through the interest and generosity of volunteers and supporters, the original powerhouse and equipment used in hydroelectric power generation and transmission still stand today and are preserved for the public to enjoy.
