Wild for the Yuba

Mark you calendar’s for next Sunday, June 4th, Wild for the Yuba, a party to help the South Yuba River Citizens League.

“Wild for the Yuba is SYRCL’s way to kick-off  the summer river season, and is a great way to support SYRCL’s work to protect and restore our watershed throughout the year,” said Executive Director Caleb Dardick.   “We invite you all to join us as we celebrate our local treasure, the Yuba River, and contribute to the work SYRCL is doing to improve conditions on the Yuba through education, advocacy and restoration.”

The price of admission includes a delicious BBQ buffet from Smiley Guys Smokehouse and one free raffle ticket. Craft beer and wine for sale from Three Forks Brewery, Ol’ Republic Brewery, Crispin Cider, Mountain Peoples Wine, and Barefoot Bubbly.

In addition to the BBQ the Wild for the Yuba event will have a silent auction, bucket raffle, live auction and music by Earles of Newtown.  The event is from 3-7pm at the North Star House in Grass Valley.

If you don’t already know about the SYRCL River Ambassador program, click here to learn how you can become a part of the team of volunteers who help educate locals and visitors about keeping the river clean.  The South Yuba River is one of the great assets in our community, so let’s all do our part to preserve, protect and enjoy the river.  And for those of you thinking about early season swimming, please check out the recent article on YubaNet about high water.   You can meet one of the River Ambassador volunteers at Bridgeport, 49, Purdon and Edwards Crossings each weekend through August.  *Edited to say the winner in Leia.

Now, if you’ve gotten this far– how about a giveaway?  I’ve got 2 tickets to next weekend’s Wild for the Yuba event, please post a comment here on why you love the South Yuba River and I’ll draw the winner on Wednesday, May 31st.  Special thanks to photographer Kial James for sharing some of his favorite South Yuba River photos, you can see more of his South Yuba photo gallery  or prints online or his Nevada City Scenics Facebook page.

    What is not to love about he Yuba! It is as healing as it is powerful, and feels like an elixir for the soul.

    The Yuba river is home to me having grown up here. Going to the river is like coming home!

    Wow! What incredible photos! What do I love about the South Yuba? Everything!
    I am newer to this area and it is my first time living away from the ocean in my whole life (many decades!). I thought I would dearly miss the ocean when we moved here 15 months ago and yet….the water, the flow, the stunning colors, the majesty of the rocks. It is all glorious! I love all the places along “her” where you can enjoy a walk, swim, or simply soak your feet and get a good dose of all those fantastic negative ions.

    I am sure I am not the only one, but I find myself longing to get to the river to sit , swim or simply be with “Mama Yuba”. Never in my life did I expect to have a love affair with a river. I am here to tell you it is possible. The South Yuba is where I go to “fill my tank”…and she never disappoints.

    thanks Erin – beautiful shots and together we can protect the Yuba now and for future generations.
    Parents – watch your kids more than ever as the water is much swifter than it looks. Thanks Caleb
