“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.
