EVENT DATE: Sep 19, 2015
We are so close to our fundraising goal! Please donate to keep the Cleanup going strong.
It was a record-setting year for community participation! More than 760 volunteers – including school groups, scouts, families, and civic organizations – showed their love for the Annual Yuba River Cleanup on September 19, 2015. We removed 15,000 pounds of trash and recyclables from 80 miles of river, creek and lake shoreline within the Yuba River and Bear River watershed.
The Yuba River is the heart of our community—show your love for this treasure by giving today. We have until October 3 to reach our goal. It takes donations to keep this critical event going and support the River Ambassador program too.
