Welcome to the Kids' Corner!

I'm Avery the Avocet. I'll be your guide in exploring the kids' corner.
Avery the Avocet
Fly with me between the different sections of this Kids' Corner to explore the amazing bird species and habitats in the Santa Clara Valley and the greater Bay Area. Find out how to get involved in fun field trips and events for you and your friends and families. Learn about current environmental issues and discover how to take action to protect wildlife and the environment.
If you have any questions, just send me an email, and I'll get back to you soon.

What's New at SCVAS
Important McClellan Ranch Construction Update: To all of our members, visitors and customers: Please be advised that both the main parking lot and walkways at McClellan Ranch Preserve will be undergoing major repairs through the end of August. While the SCVAS office will remain open during this period (except for August 12th through 18th, when the nature shop will be closed), it may be difficult to get into the front office safely. If you do come to the Ranch, please be aware of the following:
1) Access to the parking lot is severely limited, and we strongly recommend that everyone park in the overflow lot at 22241 McClellan Rd and walk over the bridge.
2) The walkways and steps leading up to the main office and nature shop may be inaccessible at various times throughout the month.
If you wish to purchase items from our Nature Shop, and would have a hard time navigating the unstable surfaces of the paths, please call Cindy at 408-252-3747 - she would be more than happy to ring you up over the phone and bring the items to your car in the overflow lot. We apologize for the inconvenience!
