The Friends Of Purdon


The Friends of Purdon (FOP) project is a Nevada City, California based effort to keep the Purdon Crossing at the South Yuba River clean by regularly removing all trash and debris and providing proper sanitation for all visitors.

We encourage everyone to experience the majestic beauty of the South Yuba River and are committed to working hard to continue to provide these much needed services.

In recent years, with the economic crises, government agencies are not able to fully care for the Purdon Crossing area that sees over 75,000 daily visits per year. As this is a wilderness area, toilets and trash removal have not consistently been provided by any single government or local agency. With such high foot traffic and usage, sanitation is a huge issue that must be dealt with on a consistent and continuous basis.
