Rotarians at Work Day

Members of the 49er Breakfast Rotary Club of Nevada City gathered Saturday (Apr. 26) to build trails and clear brush at the Bear Yuba Land Trust’s Black Swan Ranch property near the Nevada-Yuba county line.
The Rotary volunteers cleared brush and blackberries at the site of a future public trailhead and parking lot off Mooney Flat Road, and trimmed and groomed a hiking trail along the alignment of a historic mining ditch.
The activities were centered around the picturesque Black Swan Pond. The pond lies at the base of the Gold Rush-era Deer Creek Hydraulic Mine, which later became the Black Swan Mine. The 50-acre property was acquired last year by the land trust and is planned for future public recreational access.
The project marked 49er Rotary’s participation in the 9th Annual Rotarians at Work Day, an international same-day event marked by Rotary Clubs around the world, all taking part in local community service projects.
