Welcome to the 2018 Yuba River Cleanup Volunteer Registration and Clean-a-thon
The Cleanup has been going strong for two decades. Over the past 20 years, we've hauled out nearly 220,000 pounds of garbage and recycling, that's almost 110 TONS. This year the Yuba River Cleanup will cover more than 80 miles of rivers and creeks, and bring nearly 900 individuals and businesses together to clean 35 sites within the Yuba and Bear watersheds. Find out more about the 21st Annual Yuba River Cleanup HERE.
Help make our 21st the best yet with a donation. We need to raise $20,000 and sign-up 800 volunteers to put on the largest river cleanup in the Sierra.

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. We'll dance to the Heifer Belles back porch americana vibe and Red Dirt Ruckus will jam for us with their bluegrass-reggae-rock-funk-fusion. An amazing lunch provided by Emily's Cakes & Catering and Briar Patch Co-Op is FREE for volunteers registered by September 10. We hope to see you there!
