A Powerful Way to Make a Difference – Clean-a-thon

Participating in the 20th Annual Yuba River Cleanup is a powerful way to make a difference in our community.

This year, help us celebrate the 20th anniversary of community-wide stewardship by joining the Clean-a-thon, too.  Ask your friends to sponsor your service day cleaning the Yuba. All funds raised support the Cleanup and the River Ambassadors who work all summer to educate river visitors about recycling, packing-it-out, keeping glass at home and being fire safe.

You can join an existing fundraising team, create your own team with friends and family, or fundraise as an individual. Whichever you choose, get social and share your incredible efforts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and email.

We know you’re helping because you love the Yuba. Thank you. But prizes are fun, so let’s make this fun, too. We have exciting Yuba swag and one-of-a-kind prizes to say thanks and sweeten the deal for our superstar fundraisers!


Shop in style. Cleanup participants who raise $100 or more will receive their choice of this incredible reusable Chico bag made from 100% post-consumer recycled content fabric.


Get lucky. Cleanup participants who raise $125 or more (by 9/15) will be entered into our end-of-summer raffle drawing at the Cleanup to win a beautiful hand-crafted Raven West Guitar signed by rock legend Graham Nash.
