SYRCL Celebrates 20 Years of Yuba River Cleanup

For 20 years our parent nonprofit, the South Yuba River Citizen’s League, has been hosting the Annual River Cleanup. Over 700,000 visitors come to the gorgeous Yuba River each year.  SYRCL will, once again, unite over 800 people to participate in the Cleanup. Since 1998, Yuba lovers have rallied to remove more than 100 tons of garbage and recycling. 

This 20th Anniversary Cleanup will end with a Volunteer Appreciation Party.  One of our On Tour Hosts, Jumpsuit Records, will be representing the music of Ayla Nereo and Scott Nice.

Help raise funds for a clean river.
Join the CLEAN-A-THON!

Support this critical service day and honor the hundreds of volunteers dedicating their time to make the Yuba clean, safe and healthy by joining the Clean-a-thon. Join an existing fundraising team, start your own fundraiser or simply donate to your favorite team.

All funds raised support SYRCL’s Cleanup and the summer-long volunteer River Ambassador program. Ambassadors volunteer throughout the season to educate river visitors about fire safety and responsible river recreation.
