The second grant is for acquisition of a small parcel on the border of the City that will allow further development of the Trail and create a small park with access to Deer Creek.

A third grant, awarded to the Bear Yuba Land Trust, provided the final funds to acquire nearly 700 acres of land along and around the Middle Yuba River.

More waste of taxpayer money. That money could have been used for education. More land, less teachers. Higher Sierra Fund salaries, less schools. More taxes less help for the out of work citizens. Whats this world coming to.
