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.

Pass through a redwood grove and head down to the shore of the bay to look for leopard sharks and the various aquatic birds that visit there.

See the historic Lyford House, from which you can enjoy the stunning panoramic view of Belvedere, San Francisco Bay, Mount Tamalpais and the city skyline.

Tour The Marine Mammal Center and Walk Down to Rodeo Beach

Sunday, July 19, 2015  10am - 12:30pm

Explore The Marine Mammal Center on a guided tour of their facility in the Marin Headlands.

Learn how they care for the patients at their hospital, experience simulated rescue and rehabilitation demonstrations, and find out how we can all help to protect our oceans.

After the tour, join us for a short walk down to beautiful Rodeo Beach to spot seabirds and porpoises while enjoying the sunshine and fresh ocean breeze.

DIRECTIONS: Take Highway 101 and exit at Alexander Avenue towards Sausalito. Make a left at the sign for Marin Headlands (on Dane Dr/Bunker Rd)—the only left turn you can make before heading down the hill to Sausalito. You should see a tunnel with a 5-minute wait light. Proceed through the tunnel and follow Bunker Road for approximately 3 miles. Pass the lagoon and turn right and head uphill at the fork in the road. Make your next right at The Marine Mammal Center sign.
