South Yuba River Citizens League

South Yuba River Citizens League

Starting in 1983, grassroots activists successfully fought to protect the South Yuba River from dams. In doing so, they created the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL), which has remained the central hub for three decades of community activism to protect, restore, and celebrate this watershed we love.

SYRCL is the leading voice for the protection and restoration of the Yuba River and the Grater Yuba Watershed. Motivated by our love for this watershed, we advocate powerfully, engage in active stewardship, educate the public, and inspire activism from the Sierra to the sea.
