Review for South Yuba River Citizens League, Nevada City, CA, USA
The South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) has demonstrated long term commitment to promoting community understanding and appreciation of the South Yuba River Watershed. Through fun fundraising parties, to serious scientific investigations and long term monitoring of environmental conditions in the watershed, SYRCL has led the way in igniting community activism and enthusiasm for deep connections to our region's iconic river and watershed. The organization deftly uses community volunteers, collaborates with agency technical staff, and partners with aligned organizations to promote and sustain a healthy Yuba River. I have been a member of the organization since the early '80's, when fighting a small hydro project on the river (in a STATE PARK!) motivated local citizens to band together to sue the project proponent, and save the river. Like most environmental issues, the "saving" is never finished. But SYRCL has expanded in scope and capabilities, and I am proud to serve the organization and help to continue the good work of this vibrant environmental organization.
