Wildlife Education Day

Sponsored by SCVAS, Wildlife Education Day has become one of the premier festivals in the Bay Area where hundreds of families come together to celebrate and learn about birds, nature, ecology, and wildlife. Over a dozen nature-oriented organizations will provide live animals demonstrations, educational presentations, free hands-on activities, early morning bird walk, nestbox and bird feeder construction, and more.

This event is free! (Please note: if you choose to build a nestbox, there is a small fee to offset the cost of supplies.)
