Help Keep your Favorite Swimming Hole Pristine

Share with Your People

Join SYRCL Saturday, September 17, for the 19th Annual Yuba River Cleanup.

More than 700 volunteers will participate in this community-wide effort to keep 90 miles of Bear and Yuba watershed shoreline safe, healthy and trash-free.  The Yuba River is a gem, attracting more than 700,000 visitors from around the world annually.  Sadly, many ignore the saying “if you pack it in, please pack it out” – leaving behind tons of trash and recycling.

The good news is that SYRCL’s Yuba River Cleanup and River Ambassador program are taking on this problem.

Help keep your favorite swimming hole pristine, or discover someplace new.

Determine the best Cleanup site for you and your family by viewing this detailed map. Sites fill quickly, register to volunteer soon!
