SYRCL’s 26th Annual Yuba River Cleanup A Success

The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) held its 26th annual Yuba River Cleanup event on Saturday, September 23, 2023, from 9am to noon. SYRCL would like to thank the over 680 volunteers who donated over 2,000 hours to help remove trash from the Yuba watershed. SYRCL would especially like to thank the 27 individuals who took on the extra responsibility of being a site leader at the many different sites throughout the watershed.

Preliminary data from the Cleanup is being compiled, but early indications are that approximately 10,000 pounds of trash and recycling was pulled out of the watershed this year, about the weight of a standard RV.

The Yuba River Cleanup: A Dedicated Community on a Powerful Mission 

The power of hundreds of hands working in harmony is undeniable. The Yuba River Cleanup is more than just a cleanup; it’s a testament to the strength of community and shared purpose. As volunteers scour the riverbanks, wade through shallow waters, and climb over rocky terrain, camaraderie emerges, echoing the river’s own harmonious flow.

SYRCL’s Volunteer Community Survey Results

SYRCL deeply values the contributions of our Community of Yuba Volunteers. In our efforts to enhance the SYRCL volunteer experience, we recently conducted a survey to gather insights and recommendations from subscribers to SYRCL’s E-News about what motivates them to volunteer (for SYRCL and other organizations), and what might make volunteering even more enticing.
