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.

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.

At Phoenix Lake

Phoenix Lake


WildCare Family Adventures goes to Phoenix Lake

Saturday, August 15, 2015  10am - 12:30pm

This is one of Marin's most popular spots for outdoor recreation.

Located on Marin Municipal Water District watershed lands, Phoenix Lake is a reservoir that sits at the base of Mt. Tamalpais near the town of Ross. There's a lot for kids to look at here, including turtles and otters who live in the lake, wildflowers, and numerous birds and other local wildlife. Bring appropriate shoes and layers of clothing, a bag lunch, snacks, and water.

Take Sir Francis Drake Boulevard to Ross and turn into Ross at Lagunitas Road. Follow Lagunitas Road to Natalie Coffin Greene Park at the very end of the road. We will meet in the parking lot. Note: the parking lot is very small and quickly gets full. Keep in mind that much of Lagunitas is a no-parking zone.  

Programs offered in collaboration with the Canal Alliance, San Rafael, CA. Visit them online at www.canalalliance.org.
