From the Executive Director
After such a wild and snowy winter in the Sierra, we are more than ready for serene summer days and more chances to enjoy local trails. And since we live in a region with varied ecosystems and elevations, wildflower season can extend from February through September. From Wildflower Ridge Trail in Grass Valley to Spaulding Lake Trail near Grouse Ridge, we are blessed with access to these beautiful places to see the wildflowers and wildlife that depend on open spaces to survive.
Bear Yuba Land Trust has been consistently able to provide outdoor recreation and access to new wild places for more than 30 years because of generous support and donations from our community. You love trails just as much as we do and it shows! Our ability to build and maintain trails is only limited by funding–so your support is critical to making more trail work possible.
Community support and volunteer efforts are vital in the development and maintenance of the recreational trails we all value. On trails, people ride bikes, go for walks and runs, observe birds and other wildlife, identify native plants, play with children, and connect with the land and each other. We know trails promote mental and physical health and are proud of what we’ve accomplished. Please donate today to support trails and help BYLT reach our goal of $50,000 so that we can all continue to enjoy the many benefits of a vibrant and increasingly connected trail system in our community.
See you on the trail,
Erin Tarr, Executive Director
