The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) has scheduled its “State of the Yuba” event on Earth Day to report on the condition of the river, outline SYRCL’s priorities for the coming year, and most importantly, enlist all river lovers in the protection and restoration of the Yuba.
Join SYRCL on Tuesday, April 22nd from 5:30 to 8:30pm (program from 6:00-7:30pm) at the Peace Lutheran Church (828 West Main St., Grass Valley) for this informative and free event. Light refreshments, snacks, beer and wine will be available for purchase.
Updates on SYRCL’s new River Monitoring Plan and Yuba Salmon Now campaign will be featured in the program. The new River Monitoring Plan will outline priorities related to long term monitoring sites, mine land streams, dam affected reaches, invasive species, the upper South Yuba and more. “We have been hard at work developing new goals for SYRCL’s 14-year-old River Monitoring program based on our analysis of past data and future watershed challenges,” said Rachel Hutchinson, SYRCL’s River Programs Manager.
Awards for SYRCL’s “Volunteer of the Year” and “Partner of the Year” will be presented at the event as well.
The public, including SYRCL members, supporters, river lovers of all kinds and anyone interested in finding out more about SYRCL’s programs, is welcome to come celebrate Earth Day with SYRCL.
