Wildlife & Harvest Day
Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society and the City of Cupertino would like to invite you to attend Wildlife & Harvest Day - one of the premier festivals in the Bay Area where hundreds of families come together to celebrate the harvest season and learn about local birds, nature, ecology, and wildlife. Over a dozen nature-oriented organizations will provide live animals demonstrations, educational presentations, free hands-on activities, an early morning bird walk, nestbox and bird feeder construction, face painting, and more. Don't miss out on the fun! We'll see you there!
Location and Parking
Wildlife & Harvest Day festivities are located at Blackberry Farm located near our headquarters in McClellan Ranch Preserve, all located in Cupertino. There is limited onsite parking for elderly and disabled at Blackberry Farm, as well as plenty of additional parking a short walk away at Monta Vista High School.
Volunteers are needed to help us make Wildlife & Harvest Day 2018 the best one yet! We'll need help with projects like set-up in the morning and take-down in the afternoon, as well as arts and crafts tables, nest box building, and more! Sign up for a shift through the link below. We are looking forward to working with you!
