After-School Nature Walks

a

Hello! We are excited for you to join us in exploring local city parks and open space areas. Below is all the information about our After-School Nature Walks program.

Program Information

Environmental Volunteers’ After-School Nature Walks program for 2020/2021 is designed to help students and their families get to know our local city parks and open space areas. Small, individual, family groups will be guided by a knowledgeable environmental educator during a 90-minute (covid-safe) exploration of a local park. These small groups will be introduced to fun nature-based activities, and a chance to learn more about the plants and animals all around us. Join us for some fun, outdoor learning after school!

After-School Nature Walks are available every Tuesday and Thursday (with some exceptions, such as holidays).

The location of each nature walk changes twice a month. Each month we will have one South Bay location and one Peninsula location. Location information and directions will be sent prior to each program. Check the calendar below for all 2020 locations.
