Wake Up to Nature

Wake Up to Nature is Environmental Volunteers’ annual one hour breakfast. While enjoying delicious food, you will experience inspiring stories from students and educators who are changing the world. You will learn how your support directly impacts science education for local schools. Speakers include local leaders, teachers, students, and volunteers.

This year we are proud to announce we will have our first Wake Up to Nature breakfast in the South Bay in addition to our flagship event in Palo Alto.

Palo Alto Wake Up to Nature
April 14, 2020 8-9am
Mitchell Park Community Center

In light of the Covid-19 crisis, we will not have an in-person Wake Up to Nature breakfast in Palo Alto this year.

However, because funds ordinarily raised from this event are critically important to Environmental Volunteers, we are exploring other options to engage and inspire our community with an online campaign and also a live broadcast “Breakfast in Bed” event on April 14th. We are working on the details of these alternatives and we will keep you updated.
