Yurt Center

About Us

Since our founding in 2017, we have been determined to make an impact. The core of our efforts is to bring educational and cultural opportunities for our community in Northern California.


Campbell Biology book translation project

Yurt Center together with Azerbaijan Cultural Society has been sponsoring the translation of Campbell Biology book in Azerbaijani for the past 2 years. The dedication and hard work of the translators have reached a milestone, the first section of the book is now completed and available for everyone to download. We continue to work together to finish the translation of the entire book. Please share this wonderful work with your network of students and educators. The aim of the project is to translate this Biology textbook which is taught internationally and make it accessible and available to everyone to download.



Our Annual Camping event is all planned, scheduled and ready! We have tent areas reserved for our group for 2 nights Friday June 2nd to Sunday June 4th.

Your camping ticket gets you a tent space, plus all the meals on Saturday and Sunday. Join us in spending a camping trip with your friends and family, eating delicious food, fire-site chats, hiking and spending the time outdoors.
