Volunteers Bag Trash at the annual Yuba River Clean Up

SYRCL’s annual Yuba River Clean-up is one of my favorite events each year.  It’s inspiring to spend the day with so many people from all different walks of life who are willing to invest a Saturday to help clean the Yuba River Watershed.

Hilary Hodge bagging trash along Wolf Creek

This year, my wife Angelica and I helped pick up trash along Wolf Creek.  We cleaned up the area next to the North Star Mining Museum in Grass Valley.  We helped bag nearly 500 pounds of trash and cleaned up several major garbage sites.  I picked up more than 50 cigarette butts! Our team really made an impact! A huge thanks to the South Yuba Citizen’s League for everything that they do for our community.  We are looking forward to the Wild and Scenic Film Festival in January!
