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.
