“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.”

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. You can meet one of the River Ambassador volunteers at Bridgeport, 49, Purdon and Edwards Crossings each weekend through August.
