Interpretive Trails

SYRCL has partnered with various land managers to develop educational trails in the Yuba River watershed. Examples are shown below.

Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail

P1020395In 2015, SYRCL worked with the Tahoe National Forest, artist Jennifer Rain Crosby, and a local firm, Tallac Applied Ecology & Design, to re-design the educational signs along the 1.5-mile Loney Meadow Interpretive Trail. Loney Meadow is located off of Bowman Lake Road in Nevada County, and is a prime example of a Sierra Nevada mountain meadow. The new signs offer opportunities to learn about the ecology and history of the area. For a tour of the improved signs, click here.
