Restoration Projects in the Yuba Watershed

Scotch Broom Removal at Hoyt's Crossing

SYRCL partnered with the Fire Safe Council of Nevada County and adopted Hoyt's Crossing on the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) land in 2013 as a site for annual Scotch broom removal efforts and eventual eradication. Scotch Broom is the dominant invasive weed in the Yuba watershed. Removing Scotch broom helps to reduce fire danger and allow native plants and wildlife to thrive.
