SYRCL’s Salmon Expeditions are an amazing opportunity for you, your family or your child’s school to adventure down the Yuba River to see spawning salmon! We work with amazing volunteers, local river rafting guides, and scientists from the University of California to offer the community several different options to get its hands (and feet) wet while learning about the salmon life cycle, their ecology, and human impact on these incredible fish. We hope you’ll join us out on the river.
