The Nevada County Cannabis Alliance would like to thank SYRCL for the important work of assembling the cannabis impact study which has provided valuable policy recommendations for the community to consider. An important theme that we continue to hear is the significant impact from egregious unpermitted farms. The majority of survey respondents would like to see greater enforcement on these sites and our organization agrees. These large unpermitted egregious farms have a significant environmental impact that may be dangerously affecting our Yuba and Bear River Watersheds.
This summer, we hosted a total of 17 students across two Earthwatch groups in June and late July. This immersive, overnight, 12-day field science expedition focused on teaching meadow ecology, monitoring, and restoration practices at Loney Meadow and Van Norden Meadow within the Tahoe National Forest.
Recently we were able to catch up with one of our River Captains, Damon Plant, about his experiences chatting with river-goers on the weekends this summer. Read his letter to visitors recreating at the Yuba.
In June 2021, SYRCL led our week-long Youth Outdoor Leadership Opportunity (YOLO) expedition with 6 local high school students with great success!
In just a week, SYRCL staff and volunteers picked up over 1,000 pounds of trash along the South Yuba.
Tired of seeing trash at the river? Wanna know how to politely ask that person not to light their BBQ? Take action with us and be the change Yuba wanna see. From now through Labor Day we are recruiting volunteers to be the voice of the Yuba River through a number of events and opportunities. read more >>
