We Are Cleaning Up Hoyt's Crossing!
August 25, 2016
BENEFITING: SOUTH YUBA RIVER CITIZENS LEAGUE
EVENT: Yuba River Cleanup 2016
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Do you love the river? Have you been to the Yuba River? If you've ever loved a river, this would be the river. We Fox Walkers love it and we're determined to keep it beautiful, so we're cleaning it up. As Fox Walkers we have a responsibility to be caretakers of the land. We don't just spend all of our time making fires, building shelters, learning about tracking, awareness and survival skills. We also play a part in leaving the places that nurture us better than we found them so that future generations of Fox Walkers can learn all that the Earth has taught us. So when we were approached by the people at SYRCL (South Yuba River Citizens League) to help with their cleanup we were more than happy to step up. Here is the cool thing: for every donation that we receive to help SYRCL and our beautiful river we will be able to put 50% of the donations towards the purchase of the yurt at the Burton Homestead! We are excited to have the yurt as a permanent part of Fox Walkers. We will be using it as a nature resource center, classroom, and meeting space to benefit our community of instructors, students, interns and community members! Having the yurt is going to help us expand our programs and classes to other members of the community. Your contribution will help advance the healthy development of our youth through learning Earth Skills at Fox Walkers. It will also help keep this beautiful corner of the world clean for future generations. As we take our team out to cleanup the Yuba River we will also be teaching our team what it means to be caretakers of the Earth as a community. If you are local we'd love to have you come help us with the cleanup on Saturday, September 17th, from 9-4pm. We'd also love to have you at one of our youth or upcoming adult programs. Thank you for your support. You are awesome.
