We’re Looking for Volunteers for The 25th Annual Yuba River Cleanup

River Cleanup volunteers make a huge difference. Since its inception, the Yuba River Cleanup has removed more than 180 tons of garbage and recycling from the river. For 25 years this has been a robust event, where much of the community turned out to clean up the Yuba and then gathered for a big celebration.

For its 25th anniversary of the River Cleanup, SYRCL is hoping to unite the community again to help bring the Yuba back its shine. SYRCL is coordinating efforts at over 30 sites for the week of September 10 – 17th with 100s of volunteers ready to roll up their sleeves, put on some gloves, and haul out some trash — please join us.

The week will culminate in a volunteer appreciation celebration of the river and our community. On September 17th, this party will be held at Bridgeport, South Yuba River State Park, next to the newly renovated covered bridge. Food, drink, music, fun, and community will be the tenor of the day. 

The Yuba River is the gem of our community and it needs our help. If you cherish it for what it represents to you and the community, please sign up to volunteer as part of SYRCL’s 25th Annual Yuba River Cleanup. 

If you are unable to participate in the Cleanup, you can chip in to support the 25th Yuba River Cleanup and honor the thousands of volunteer hours that will go into keeping our rivers healthy and safe.

It’s thanks to YOU that we can keep the Yuba River clean and healthy for future generations.
