SYRCL Celebrates 30 Years

What a wild and scenic trip it’s been  for the  The South Yuba River Citizen’s League.  SYRCL staffer Melinda Booth says the grassroots organization was formed 30 years ago to stop dams from being built on the South Yuba river.

Booth says it was a big fight and a long fight but in 1999  SYRCL achieved Wild and Scenic status for 39 miles of the South Yuba River.   SYRCL Executive Director Caleb Dardick says “What a Wild and Scenic Trip it’s Been” is an appropriate title for SYRCL’s  big  30th Anniversary party  this weekend at the North Star house.
