Minewatch Nevada County is a community campaign sponsored by Community Environmental Advocates Foundation that brings together a coalition of nonprofit organizations, residents, and businesses, in the Grass Valley and Nevada City areas. Community opposition to the re-opening of the long-shuttered Idaho-Maryland Mine in Grass Valley, CA has grown significantly over the last two years. A residential neighborhood has developed around the abandoned site. In July, community leaders delivered over 4,700 petition signatures from Nevada County residents who opposed the mine. 250 business leaders signed a letter or a petition opposing the mine. Hundreds of lawn signs are displayed throughout the County. The Nevada County Board of Supervisors may vote on this issue in 2023.
Each year the Wild and Scenic Film Festival hosts a large 5-day event in Nevada City. This year’s main event will be held in February. The Festival was started by the watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) in 2003. The festival’s namesake is in celebration of SYRCL’s landmark victory in receiving “Wild & Scenic” statute for 39 miles of the South Yuba river in 1999. This February’s event features over 150 award-winning films and welcomes over 100 guest speakers, celebrities, and activists who bring a human face to the environmental movement. The festival is building a network of grassroots organizations connected by a common goal of using film to inspire activism. With the support of National Partners: Peak Design, Hipcamp, EarthJustice, Miir, and Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, the festival can reach an even larger audience.
