CANCELLED – Scotch Broom Challenge

April 4 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

FREE

UPDATE: In response to COVID-19 and an attempt to keep risk low and reduce the risk of spreading the virus, we are cancelling our annual Scotch Broom Challenge. Please feel free to reach out if you have additional questions and concerns. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Scotch broom is a non-native invasive weed that has become rampant throughout the Sierra foothills – especially Nevada County. It is highly flammable, whether it is dead or alive. Removing it reduces the risk of catastrophic fire.

Join SYRCL’s River Avengers and help remove this species from our watershed!

Saturday, April 4, 9am-1pm

Kneebone Beach, South Yuba River State Park.

Bring a lunch, water, sturdy shoes, and join your fellow river-lovers in removing this invasive species!

Tools and snacks provided.

Due to limited availability of weed wrenches, this event is limited to 20 participants. Registration required at: https://yubariver.volunteerlocal.com/volunteer/

Questions? Please contact Mary McDonnell at mary@yubariver.org or (530) 265-5961 ext 216.
