South Yuba River Citizens League
25th Annual Yuba River Cleanup (Community-Wide)
Due to COVID-19 and the need to recreate closer to home, crowds have continued to flock to the Yuba this summer. This increased visitorship has resulted in mounds of trash on beaches and trails. This means that the Yuba River Cleanup is needed now more than ever to protect our watershed.
For the past two years, we have alleviated large crowds at popular cleanup sites and allowed physical distancing by offering a self-guided cleanup option the week prior to the traditional community cleanup day on Saturday, September 17th.
Community-Wide Cleanup: The traditional community-wide cleanup will happen from 9am to 1pm, Saturday, September 17th. Volunteers will go directly to their sites, where they’ll receive an orientation and supplies from a site leader.
Self-Guided Cleanup: In addition to the distancing benefits, you’re also able to select a time to volunteer (between September 10-16, 9am-5pm ) that works best for your personal schedule. When you register for the self-guided cleanup, you’ll receive directions to the site of your choice. The day of your scheduled cleanup, you or a representative from your cleanup group/team will stop by the SYRCL office at 313 Railroad Ave, Nevada City CA 95959 to pick-up essential materials like data collection cards, trash-pickers, trash bags, buckets, and gloves. After you finish cleaning, you’ll return all supplies and data cards to the SYRCL office (same day).
Then you’re OFF and into the greater Yuba River Watershed to make a difference!
ALL volunteers from the self-guided cleanup and community-wide cleanup are invited to join us for the Post-Cleanup Party, held this year at Bridgeport Crossing. Register now to reserve your favorite site and lunch ticket.
