The Yuba River in the Sierra foothills of Northern California. The river is traditional spawning habitat for the Chinook Salmon. Badly damaged by industrial gold mining upstream, the forks of the Yuba are today blocked by dams which prevent the salmon from returning to their spawning grounds.
Two dozen teens and eight teachers gathered in the Sierra foothills for Teen Earth Magic 2009.
Team games helped build the group.
Trust exercises took the work deeper.
During a break, campers organized a massage spiral.
We are a circle, within a circle.
