We at SYRCL care deeply about the education of the youth in our community. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, SYRCL’s River Education Programming is working to create opportunities for parents, educators and youth to still tap into learning, surrounding, cherishing, and cultivating excitement for Yuba Watershed. More
SYRCL provides education that aims to create life-long stewards of the Yuba River watershed. We do this through programs and curriculum that incorporate lessons about watershed health, Yuba salmon, climate change, water conservation, outdoor experiential learning, and scientific monitoring to students of all levels. We strive to empower, engage, and collaborate with local youth and learning communities, and create linkages between the River Education program and other areas of SYRCL’s work.
