Due to COVID-19, we had to cancel our beloved event, Wild for the Yuba. But we tried something new – a virtual auction for the prizes we gathered early before the cancellation – and we were blown away by the community participation. Thank you to all who bid online and congratulations to the winners. Your support is especially important for the Yuba right now after a summer of intense use and visitation.
The Virtual Auction raised around $4,000 to support the Yuba River Cleanup, but we need to raise around $3,500 more to meet our goal. Organizing a 12-day event so volunteers have the time and space to practice physical distancing takes time, resources, and people power.
We have heard stories from hundreds of you about what you’ve seen this summer — trash, graffiti, illegal dumping, cooking fires, dog waste and unsafe parking because visitors are trying to escape months being stuck at home.
Your Cleanup donation will help us organize the hundreds of volunteers needed to remove a summer’s worth of trash from the watershed. Help us overcome the challenges of a high traffic summer with a donation to the Yuba River Cleanup, today.
