The Wild & Scenic Film Festival has officially opened! We invite you to join us for our live virtual events, check out the films created by some of our community members, and explore our watershed during the rainy season.
For the past eighteen years, SYRCL has been proud to offer a four-year college scholarship to a graduating high school senior who has demonstrated a commitment to the environment. Since 2002, eighteen $4,000 scholarships have been awarded. Details.
SYRCL’s annual scholarship fundraiser, Quiz Night, looked a little different different this year but we were still able to reunite virtually to tackle brain-scratching trivia thanks to the all-too-familiar Zoom. With your help, we raised funds for the Youth Environmentalist of the Year scholarship. Details
We have been hard at work developing brain-scratching trivia to stump even the best trivia buffs and would love to reunite with you and the rest of our SYRCL community for this evening of ‘virtual’ fun. We hope to see you there! Details
