SYRCL would like to thank everyone who has registered to volunteer for the Cleanup this year. We are happy to say that most of the Cleanup sites have all the needed volunteers! However, there are still openings for some hardy volunteers that are willing to drive to the far reaches of the watershed and hike for several miles to remove trash and recycling from the Yuba. If this is you, register today or call Andrew (265-5961 x 203) for one of these sites:
- Little Town of Washington (longer drive, but easier cleanup)
- Black Swan (Lower Yuba below Engelbright, hike)
- Foote’s Crossing (Middle Fork of the Yuba, hike)
- Round Mountain (Hiking upstream from Purdon)
- Restoration at Edwards Crossing
- Restoration Oregon Creek
- Restoration Bennett Street Meadow
With 35 sites, 90 miles of stream bank, over 500 volunteers, 30 partners and thousands of pounds of trash and recycling, the Yuba River Cleanup is no small endeavor. SYRCL staff spend months coordinating the Cleanup with a cost of $28,195. With your help we can continue to mobilize the community to cleanup the Yuba and promote stewardship all summer long through our River Ambassador program. Please click to make a personally significant donation today to care for the Yuba year-round.
If you have already registered, please participate in the Clean-a-thon, and ask your friends and family to sponsor your day cleaning up the Yuba.

Thank You Sponsors
SYRCL is honored to receive such tremendous support for the Cleanup from local businesses. The Yuba River is one of Nevada County’s economic drivers and keeping the river clean is not only good for the Yuba, it is good for the local economy.
“Balance Hydrologics is proud to sponsor the River Cleanup in memory of our friend and colleague Chris White. Chris maintained a deep connection with the Yuba River, and graciously volunteered his expertise to assist his community and colleagues in protecting local habitat, people, and agricultural lands from water quality and physical damage. Our staff wants to join in on the River Cleanup to honor and continue this legacy” said David Shaw, Principal Hydrologist/Geologist at Balance Hydrologics, Inc.
