Now that the Summer Solstice has passed and the temperatures are on the rise, volunteer River Ambassadors are more important than ever. Since Memorial Day, the program has targeted Highway 49 and Bridgeport, as those two crossings see some of the greatest visitation on the weekends. Moving forward, we’d like to be able to have River Ambassadors stationed at Purdon Crossing for the rest of the summer as well.

SYRCL’s 26th Annual Yuba River Cleanup will be taking place on September 23, 2023 (with a self-guided component the following week). This annual event not only demonstrates Nevada County’s pride in the beauty of its watershed but has become a critical part of keeping the Yuba from further environmental degradation due to overuse and unthinking recreators.
With June being Pride Month, we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight a few of the incredible Wild & Scenic Film Festival official selections that explore LGBTQIA+ subjects and issues in their films.
Wild & Scenic focuses on storytelling and amplifying voices that have been systematically marginalized. Films can serve as a potent tool to educate and inspire activism and growth, and the Wild & Scenic Film Festival is committed to offering programming that addresses environmental injustice, racism, and inequity as well as lack of representation in the outdoors and environmental movements.
On Saturday, June 3, 2023, from 6:00-9:30 pm at the beautiful grounds of the Wheelhouse Event Center in Nevada City, CA, SYRCL celebrated its 40th Anniversary with its Annual Wild for the Yuba Event.
The event featured music, great food, and an array of fabulous auction items donated by local businesses, artists, and others in support of the Yuba
