SYRCL river cleanup to start

Last year, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) piloted a summer cleanup program to decrease the amount of trash in the stream. The season-long program at Edwards Crossing was so successful, the organization has decided to enlarge it this summer to include two more sites.

Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, SYRCL volunteers will pick up trash and recyclables each weekend at Edward’s, Purdon, and the Highway 49 crossings on the river outside Nevada City. The cleanup program will also have recycling, with Nevada County providing the bins.

To volunteer for just one day or more, contact Karen Brown at (530)263-1926 or
