Camp Cleanups

Help Clean and Restore Areas of Nevada County

Camp Cleanup, June 9, 2022

Save the date! Our next camp cleanup is right around the corner!

We’ve joined forces with the South Yuba River Citizens League, County of Nevada, Nevada County Waste Management, Grass Valley Police Department, Common Spirit Health (Dignity Health) and BriarPatch Food Co-op to offer a community-wide camp cleanup on Thursday, June 9.

We’ll clean and beautify abandoned homeless camps in the area as well as mitigate for fire, but we need your help to ensure the cleanup is a success.

Volunteers Needed:

We are looking for approximately 30 volunteers to join us. No past experience required but an ability to bend, lift trash, and walk on uneven terrain are a must. Bonus if you own a truck we can use to haul trash!

Register Today:

To sign up, please email the development department at or call 530-615-0852.

Know and Go (Advance registration required): 

  • When: Thursday, June 9 from approximately 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
  • Where to Meet: Grass Valley Vets Hall (space donated by County of Nevada)
  • What to Bring: Work gloves; wear comfy clothes and closed-toed shoes (bring a truck if you have one!)

All volunteers are required to take safety training onsite and sign a waiver to participate onsite. All volunteers will be provided complimentary breakfast and lunch—donated by BriarPatch Food Co-op.
