Since 1998, the volunteers of the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) have removed 180,000 pounds of trash at 30 cleanup sites on 80 miles of this important natural resource.

This year, organizers at SYRCL continue their mission to restore the health of the Yuba through the 18th annual Yuba River Cleanup on Saturday.

“Part of what we want to do with the cleanup is to remind people to take responsibility for the river, to pack out what they pack in,” said Caleb Dardick, executive director of the SYRCL.
