Newly launched, SYRCL is proud to announce the Frank L. Wright Memorial River Monitoring Adopt-a-Site Program.
Did you know about our award-winning, robust citizen science monitoring program? Since 2001 volunteers have been systematically monitoring sites along the Yuba River (all three forks, mainstem, and many tributaries) in order to monitor and assess water quality conditions. Just another way we advocate for a healthy watershed. Now, you can show your love for our monitoring program (and your appreciation for our trained and dedicated volunteers) by adopting a river monitoring site. Adopt-a-Site for one month or one year–it all helps continue and improve this important program.
Mainstem Guardian: One site for one season, $750
Tributary Hero: One site for half season, $375
Stream Champion: One site for one month, $100
We chose to name the program in honor of long-time River Monitor, Frank L. Wright (1928-2014). Frank became a River Monitor in 2003 and was part of the “Site 1 Team.” His team traveled monthly to the North Yuba River above Downieville to test water quality at one of the watershed’s most distant and pristine sites.
“Frank was an incredible and compassionate man with a huge heart. He was dedicated to be on time, have every piece of equipment out within minutes, and get right to the job.” -Jen Hemmert
HUGE thanks go out to our current River Monitors for their dedication and enthusiasm for this great work.
