Junior Conservationists at Independence Trail


Join Bear Yuba Land Trust as we continue our family series – Junior Conservationist: Stories in Nature. This time we will explore the wonders of Independence Trail East.

Like the Independence Trail West, the East trail follows the gentle gradient of an old mining ditch and is wheelchair accessible for one mile. It offers occasional views of the South Yuba River canyon and passes seasonal side streams and bogs. Tree cover and a generally northerly orientation keep the trail relatively cool and green for its 1400-1500 foot elevation.

A conservationist is someone who advocates or acts for the protection and preservation of the environment and wildlife. These outings are designed for children ages 5 to 12, accompanied by a parent or other caregiver. Join us the second Saturday of every month as we explore local trails and discover the plants, animals, and history of each special region.
