Nevada City is currently in the running for Outside Magazine’s Best Towns contest, as one of the contenders for Best River Town. If you haven’t already gone and voted, click here, we’ve got 3 more days to win the popularity contest. Here are 10 reasons why I think we should win.
Home to the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, ““Wild & Scenic was born by and for the Yuba River. A fundraiser for the South Yuba River Citizens League’s year-round conservation work, this festival was named in honor of securing Wild & Scenic status for 39 miles of the South Yuba River in 1999. Each year Wild & Scenic brings 100+ environmental and adventure films to Nevada City along with thousands of activists who attend in order to learn, inspire, and recharge,” said Festival Director Melinda Booth. Plus the On Tour Wild & Scenic Film Festival inspires an additional 35,000 people in 150 communities.
Countless opportunities to get out and learn more about the eco system and wild life, whether on a wildflower walk or a bird walk with the South Yuba River State Park
Access to Mother Nature in our back yard and hopefully inspiring current and future generations to look after the South Yuba so the river can be enjoyed for generations to come
