As you can see from our many articles on travel and community involvement, we are an active bunch. Our larger community of Nevada County is also a place of activism. Recently, a delegation of over 100 people from Nevada County caravanned on the “Yuba Express” to the State Capitol and hand-delivered over 10,000 letters and petition signatures to Governor Jerry Brown.
