20th Annual Yuba River Cleanup Photo

The Story

EVENT DATE: Sep 16, 2017

Welcome to the 2017 Yuba River Cleanup volunteer registration! The Cleanup has been going strong for two decades. Over the past 20 years, we've hauled out more than 100 tons of garbage and recycling.

Help make our 20th the best yet! We need to raise $20,000 to put on the largest river cleanup in the Sierra. Determine which site is best for you and your family, check out the Cleanup site map here: Yuba River Cleanup & Restoration Map. Please consider your fundraising options by joining our Crowdrise campaign once you finish your volunteer registration. You can join an existing fundraising team, create your own team with friends and family, or fundraise as an individual. Whichever you choose, have your family and friends show the Yuba some love too, by donating in celebration of your day of hard work. Check out the exciting prizes below.*

Don't miss the VOLUNTEER APPRECIATION PARTY from 1pm-5pm, at Pioneer Park in Nevada City. Come enjoy delicious local eats, tasty brews, and great company. Local artists Ayla Nereo and Scott Nice will dazzle us with their musical gifts, and lunch is FREE for volunteers registered by September 11. We hope to see you there!

THEME: In celebration of our 20th Anniversary of the Cleanup, this year’s theme is THROWBACK.  Do you have a vintage Cleanup or SYRCL tee? Perhaps you want to dust off your fanny pack and tube socks? Whatever you fancy, we hope you and your friends will bring your team spirit and own unique interpretation of Throwback to the Cleanup and volunteer appreciation party. Costumes are highly encouraged!

 

*We have exciting incentives to say thanks and sweeten the deal for our superstar fundraisers! Participants who raise $100 or more will receive an incredible reusable Chico bag made from 100% post-consumer recycled content fabric. Participants who raise $125 or more, by 9/15, will be entered into our end-of-summer raffle drawing at the Cleanup to win a beautiful hand-crafted Raven West Guitar signed by rock legend Graham Nash. The highest earning individual will receive a festival pass to the Wild & Scenic Film Festival (raising at least $300), and the highest earning team will receive $100 gift card to Natural Selection for celebratory treats.

Superfine print: Staff and board members are not elligible to win the highest earning individual or team prizes.
