Share with Your People

Recently, the Tahoe National Forest announced their on-going partnership with National Forest Foundation providing $117 million dollars to begin working to reduce wildfire risk on the North Yuba landscape. This funding will support the North Yuba Landscape Resilience Project which was developed through the North Yuba Forest Partnership – a partnership of which SYRCL was a founding member. 

The North Yuba Landscape Resilience Project is a multi-phase vegetation and fuels management project which will occur across 275,000-acres in the North Yuba landscape. With this agreement, National Forest Foundation will begin this crucial work beginning to treat the next 21,000 acres reducing the risk of catastrophic wildfire and its impacts on the communities and infrastructure in that area. 

As a founding member of the North Yuba Forest Partnership, SYRCL is proud to be part of this team. We have been engaged in the process since the beginning, working closely with the Tahoe National Forest, National Forest Foundation, and the rest of the Partnership to balance the need to protect wildlife and cultural resources with the need to think and act big to protect our watershed.
