The Yuba Project is a 14,545 acre project in Sierra County that encompasses National Forest system lands. The Yuba project is a collaborative project between the National Forest Foundation, the Tahoe National Forest, the Yuba Water Agency, and Blue Forest Conservation. The National Forest Foundation has taken lead on implementing projects on approximately 5,690 of these acres. Treatments are proposed to enhance watershed health through improving forest health and resilience to changing climatic conditions, reducing surface and ladder fuels to a level that would allow safe fire suppression, and improving wildlife habitat.

More projects coming soon...
