Exciting Upcoming Volunteer & Employment Opportunities


Each year more than 1,500 volunteers help restore mountain meadows, monitor the health of the river, advocate for a clean Yuba and inspire activism with the Wild & Scenic Film Festival. Together we extend a powerful coalition from the summit to the sea.

May 16 — Love the Yuba? Join our River Ambassadors!

River Ambassadors are volunteers who take action to motivate and educate the community to care for the South Yuba River! This dedicated team promotes an ethic of responsible, non-polluting use of the river by speaking one-on-one with visitors at crossings, beaches and on trails. Learn more about River Ambassadors & sign-up to join us at the May 16th training!

May 15-25 — Interested in River Restoration?

The lower Yuba River has been dramatically altered by hydraulic mining sediments, dredger mining, dams, levees, and alteration of flows. SYRCL is leading the effort to rehabilitate the lower Yuba River for salmon, steelhead, riparian habitat, and wildlife. This is a great opportunity to participate in the project. Learn more about the project & sign-up to volunteer!
