SYRCL teams up to restore wildlife habitat

Nearly 60 community members volunteered with the South Yuba River Citizens League for a day to restore native wildlife habitat along the South Yuba River watershed.

This is the second year SYRCL has partnered with public land management agencies to address high-priority vegetation project. This year, volunteers worked with personnel from California State Parks, Bureau of Land Management, Tahoe National Forest and Sequoia Challenge, the organization that developed and maintains the Independence Trail.

The project was supported by staffing and equipment from the participating agencies, from SYRCL membership support and from a grant from the Nevada County Fish and Wildlife Commission. The Redbud Chapter of the California Native Plant Society provided consultation.

For the project, teams of volunteers ages 7-70 worked at four sites throughout the South Yuba corridor: Bridgeport, the Independence Trail, Hoyt’s Crossing and near the Brubaker Mine site near the town of Washington.
