Following the success of this year’s Yuba River Cleanup, in which volunteers hauled out more than six tons of trash and recyclables, we may want to take a moment to consider why cleanup programs are so necessary and why illegal dumping is such a frequent occurrence in the Yuba River watershed and throughout Nevada County.
Bright Green Future chronicles a renaissance at the edge of a crisis. As climate change shifts our planet towards an uncertain future, a movement of unlikely heroes are building a blueprint for a better world. It’s a world where clean power grows wealth for local communities, resources regenerate themselves, city planning is driven by the people, and healthy soil is our greatest asset. These changemakers have opened a gateway for ordinary people to begin imagining and building the bright future we deserve.
A big ‘Thank You’ to Raft California and Teagan Santin for choosing SYRCL as the recipient of their aluminum can recycling profits! SYRCL is very grateful for the generous donation, which will help to support the work we do to protect and restore the Yuba River watershed.
