The South Yuba River Citizens League is thrilled to announce the arrival of two new AmeriCorps members who will serve until November, 2012. Please stop by and welcome Jessica Roberts, Watershed Coordinator, and Eric Rubenstahl, River Monitoring Coordinator. They each bring joyful enthusiasm for their positions and we are glad to have them join the SYRCL team!
Jessica joins us from Washington D.C. where she recently graduated from college at American University. She has a special interest in working with communities to promote conservation and restoration work. “I am excited to be starting new SYRCL education programs, helping out with restoration projects, and getting to know a whole new community of inspirational individuals.”
Eric moved to Nevada City just over a month ago from Fort Collins, Colorado and is originally from Connecticut. Snowboarding, hiking, camping, and rafting are only a few of Eric’s hobbies. He has been fortunate to hike sections of the South Yuba already, but is excited to explore more of the watershed. Eric has quickly developed an appreciation for Nevada City and is excited to work with the dedicated and passionate people of the community applying his skills as the River Monitoring Coordinator.
