The South Yuba River Citizens League’s Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires environmental activism and a love for nature – through film. The 22nd annual festival takes place in-person February 15-19, 2024. The Festival couldn’t happen without all its incredible volunteers. Volunteers receive a free session ticket for each shift volunteered and access to the Festival’s Volunteer Lounge.
Since 2019 the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) has forged a partnership with the US Forest Service (USFS) to confront the challenges posed by invasive weeds in the Yuba River Watershed.
As part of ongoing efforts in forest restoration, the SYRCL invasive weeds crew was busy this past field season treating and monitoring over 250 sites and 50,000 plants throughout the Tahoe National Forest (TNF).
We at SYRCL were deeply saddened by the news that Jim Wofford passed away on September 18. Jim was an extraordinary volunteer who worked on conservation projects across the entire Yuba watershed – from field work and tree planting to water quality testing and greenhouse gas monitoring. A SYRCL member and volunteer since 1989, Jim was awarded “Volunteer of the Year” in 2011. He lived the life of a true citizen scientist and helped SYRCL advance its work in restoring our headwater meadows and the lower Yuba River.
