Minewatch Nevada County is a community campaign sponsored by the 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 reopening of the long-closed Idaho-Maryland mine in Grass Valley, Calif., has increased dramatically over the past two years. A residential area has developed around the abandoned site. In July, community leaders delivered more than 4,700 petition signatures from Nevada County residents who opposed the mine. 250 business leaders have signed a letter or petition opposing the mine. Hundreds of lawn signs are posted throughout the county. The Nevada County Board of Supervisors could vote on this issue in 2023.
Every year the Wild and Scenic Film Festival hosts a big 5-day event in Nevada City. This year’s main event will take place in February. The festival was started by watershed advocacy group, the South Yuba River Citizens League (SYRCL) in 2003. The festival’s namesake celebrates SYRCL’s historic victory by being awarded “Wild & Scenic” status for 39 miles of the South Yuba River in 1999. February’s event showcases over 150 award-winning films and hosts over 100 guest speakers, celebrities and activists who bring a human face to the environmental movement. The festival builds a network of grassroots organizations linked 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 wider audience.
