Like the President’s annual address, SYRCL has scheduled our “State of the Yuba” on Earth Day to report to the citizens of the Yuba watershed on the condition of the river, outline SYRCL’s priorities for the coming year, and most importantly, enlist all river lovers in the protection and restoration of the Yuba.

We invite everyone, including SYRCL members, supporters, and river lovers of all kinds and anyone interested in finding out more about SYRCL’s programs to come celebrate Earth Day with SYRCL. The “State of the Yuba” will be an excellent opportunity for you to learn more about SYRCL and find out how you can get involved in the stewardship of this magnificent river.

  • Hear exciting updates on SYRCL’s work throughout the watershed
  • Find out what SYRCL’s River Monitors have learned about the health of the river
  • Get the latest progress report on the Yuba Salmon Now campaign
  • Learn about volunteer opportunities to help SYRCL protect the Yuba
  • Honor SYRCL’s “Volunteer of the Year” and “Partner of the Year” awardees

SYRCL staff will present informative poster sessions and answer your questions about:

  • Restoration activities from summit meadows to the lower Yuba River
