BYLT Joins the Great Sierra River Cleanup

Captain Slider2BYLT will host a cleanup site near the new Yuba Rim Trail on Rice’s Crossing Preserve. Volunteers will clean up trash, discarded tires, plastic and a hot tub dumped long ago down a steep hillside near the new trail. Volunteers will work with BYLT to fit whatever they can into a truck trailer.

Now in its seventh year, the Sierra wide event coincides with SYRCL’s 18th annual Yuba River Cleanup.
BYLT’s 2015 cleanup site is one of 28 cleanup sites within the Yuba River watershed. In addition, local organizers from SYRCL have scheduled six restoration projects
