WildCare Family Adventures

Enjoy a day of discovery and learning out in nature with the family. WildCare naturalists will lead fun family outings with the objective of deepening our commitment to taking care of our planet.

To achieve this, WildCare’s Family Adventures groups will be visiting some sites that work to preserve wildlife and our natural environment. Whenever possible, family nature hikes will be incorporated into each adventure to enjoy the local flora and fauna. 

These programs are in English and Spanish, and free to the public. WildCare strongly encourages carpooling. Contact Marco by calling (415) 453 1000 ext. 17 or marco@wildcarebayarea.org for more information or to reserve space on our free shuttle service from the Canal area of San Rafael.
