The Yuba River still needs your help shedding the waste that has built up over the summer and SYRCL would love to welcome you as a volunteer.
River Cleanup volunteers make a huge difference. Since its inception, the Yuba River Cleanup has removed more than 180 tons of garbage and recycling from the river. For 25 years this has been a robust event, where much of the community turned out to clean up the Yuba and then gathered for a big celebration.
To protect our river and our community whilst being COVID safe, this year the Yuba River Cleanup will have a new format. Rather than one day of fun, the 2020 Yuba River Cleanup will be held across 12 days, allowing our community to volunteer in small groups while keeping social-distancing. Details

Each year, SYRCL releases an Impact Report that details the work we have done over the course of the previous year.
As we begin 2022, we find it useful to reflect back on the work we accomplished in 2021. We could not have done it without hundreds of volunteers and members, dozens of partners, and an incredible staff of 20+ people.
Following the success of this year’s Yuba River Cleanup, in which volunteers hauled out more than six tons of trash and recyclables, we may want to take a moment to consider why cleanup programs are so necessary and why illegal dumping is such a frequent occurrence in the Yuba River watershed and throughout Nevada County.
From the headwaters along Donner Summit to the confluence of the Yuba and Feather Rivers, hundreds of people turned out for the South Yuba River Citizens League’s (SYRCL’s) 24th annual Yuba River Cleanup that took place from September 11-18, 2021.
The annual Yuba River Cleanup relies on our generous sponsors. Without them, coordinating this week-long event would not be possible.
