Yuba River Cleanup

Join SYRCL and the community for the 19th annual Yuba River Cleanup!

We have nearly 90 miles of rivers, creeks and shoreline to cover in just one day and we need your help keeping our local rivers trash free. After a busy summer season, the Yuba and Bear Rivers have received both a lot of love, and a lot of over-use.  Help us haul out the garbage, divert recyclables from the landfill, and keep the Yuba clean, safe and healthy.

All registered volunteers will receive a complimentary picnic lunch. Find your site of interest on our map of Cleanup and Restoration sites and register for the Cleanup.

This event has been going strong for 18 years, hauling out nearly 100 tons of garbage and recycling.  Help make our 19th the best yet.  We need to raise $15,000 to put on the largest river cleanup in the Sierra. Please consider your fundraising options by joining our Crowdrise campaign once you finish your volunteer registration.  You can join an existing fundraising team, create your own team with friends and family, or fundraise as an individual.  Whichever you choose, have your family and friends show the Yuba some love too, by donating in celebration of your day of hard work.

Don’t miss the VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION PARTY from 1pm-4pm, Pioneer Park, Nevada City. Enjoy delicious local eats, tasty brews, music and great company.  This is a beautiful and inspiring community event you will most definitely want to experience!
