As we begin 2022, we find it useful to reflect back on the work we accomplished in 2021. We could not have done it without hundreds of volunteers and members, dozens of partners, and an incredible staff of 20+ people.

You may have noticed the new storm drain markers across Nevada City. SYRCL has been installing these markers over the past few years, and we have finally finished placing the last one!
SYRCL is asking the Army Corps of Engineers to help threatened salmon reach their spawning grounds by cleaning the fish ladders at Daguerre Point Dam. We offer context to our request by outlining some of the history of the dam.
The Wild & Scenic Film Festival has officially opened! We invite you to join us for our live virtual events, check out the films created by some of our community members, and explore our watershed during the rainy season.
During this holiday season, SYRCL is asking for donations to help us educate the next generation of river stewards – the future voices of the watershed who are learning to protect this place we love.
For the past eighteen years, SYRCL has been proud to offer a four-year college scholarship to a graduating high school senior who has demonstrated a commitment to the environment. Since 2002, eighteen $4,000 scholarships have been awarded. Details.
Protecting the Yuba watershed from the impacts of climate change is a priority for our work. Your special year-end gift will go directly to SYRCL’s projects and programs that are addressing these very threats. If you donate by December 31, your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by another SYRCL member who’s helping to build a resilient, vibrant, and safe watershed
The storm that swept through Nevada County between the 23rd and 25th of October dropped between seven and twelve inches of much needed precipitation. This rainfall has led to, among other things, increased flows in the Yuba River and SYRCL’s ‘first flush’ event.
We sat down with our resident hydrologist, Karl Ronning, to learn more about this ‘first flush’ event and to discuss the results of our water quality monitoring.
SYRCL has been working alongside its partners for a decade to restore the lower Yuba River by creating spawning and rearing habitat for the threatened Chinook salmon. Our newest project is planned for a stretch of the lower Yuba called Rose Bar. We are inviting the public to join us for a tour of the project area on Friday, December 3rd.
