SYRCL’s annual Quiz Night scholarship fundraiser is back! Since 2002, we have been gathering as a community for a night of revelry to raise support for our community’s high school graduating seniors (with the exception of 2020). Each year, we award a $4,000 scholarship to support a local college-bound student on their path to becoming an environmental steward.  

This year’s Quiz Night provides an opportunity for a Virtual “Reunion” with SYRCL as well as family, friends, and old acquaintances. Create your own dream-team and join us for an evening of brain-scratching trivia, laughter, and the chance to win prizes.

Earth Week Backyard BioBlitz

April 22 @ 9:00 am - April 25 @ 7:00 pm
FREE

BioBlitzes are powerful citizen science tools that can add a wealth of knowledge to what we already know about our ecosystems. By using a large group of people to record observations, more data can be collected at once than would be during a traditional biological survey. Scientists can then use this data to learn more about the species in the area surveyed, such as the abundance of a certain animal, or how many invasive species are present.
