Anderson [1] is located in south Shasta County along the Sacramento River. It is characterized by the River Valley landscape that rises in the west into rolling foothills. The land is former agricultural land that has been changed to residential, commercial and industrial uses since the coming of the railroad in 1872.

The area is sprinkled with large oak trees, including Valley Oaks, Blue Oaks, and Live Oaks. The Sacramento River, Anderson Creek, other streams and man-made canals and waterways traverse the area. These waterways have created delightful riparian corridors that support a wide variety of plants and animal communities.

The gently sloping land transitions from the Sacramento River on the north and east to hillside slopes to the south and west. The gentle slopes allow residents of the community to enjoy the sweeping vistas of Mt. Shasta, the northern Sierra Nevada Mountains, Mt. Lassen and the southern Cascade Range.
