Programs and Events
For Teachers and Parents
This popular standards-based assembly uses comedy and student participation to help students learn about science. The main characters Tiny, Flo, and the Fish Guy or Gal, teach students about the amazing journey of Chinook Salmon and Steelhead.
SYRCL’s popular Water Audits program is an integrated curriculum, which leads students in an interactive exploration of the water cycle with Detective Drizzle’s mini-investigations. It then gives students the opportunity to play an active role in how their school conserves water!
Join SYRCL River Science staff and wonderful river guides on a float trip down the lower Yuba to see spawning salmon. This educational and fun day includes learning about the Yuba River ecosystem, how mining has impacted the river, SYRCLs work to protect salmon, and viewing one of SYRCL’s major restoration projects at Hammon Bar.
SYRCL is now offering free Project WET trainings for elementary and secondary teachers. This award-winning water education program includes integrated, standards-based curriculum for students of all ages and interests.
Give your school group or classroom an opportunity to show their Yuba love! Participate in SYRCL’s Yuba River Cleanup. Every September thousands of volunteers work on restoration and cleanup sites to maintain the Yuba’s beauty. The Cleanathon is also a great fundraising opportunity for schools!
