60 people hiked around the Black Swan Lake and hydraulic diggings on Saturday morning for the grand opening of a new 2-mile trail.
A new 2,700-acre recreation area that promises hiking, bicycling and horseback riding trails as well as new Yuba River fishing, kayaking and swimming spots.
The two-mile Black Swan trail is a new addition to our already stellar trails menu in Nevada County. I started building this trail in 2014 on a trial basis with Bear Yuba Land Trust. I suppose the trial work days went well because I am now part of the staff and flourishing as a trails coordinator. I have a great job that allows me to be out in nature to learn and tune into our dynamic planet.
BYLT will recognize two lifetime conservationists during its annual Oak Tree Bash: Annual Meeting and Award Ceremony on Tuesday, March 3 at the historic North Star House.
In a historic deal, BYLT will hold a conservation easement on 41 acres on the Yuba River known as the “Narrows.”
