Who: Homeschooling families with children in grade school, middle school, and, now, high school (ages six to teens).  Not a homeschooling family? No problem! You're welcome to join, but don't be surprised if many of our events are held during the school day. 

What: Exploration... hiking... festivals... outside playtime... park play ... farms... beaches... redwoods... nature classes... seasonal festivals... etc... there are so many outdoor/nature-related activities for our children to enjoy here in the Bay Area!

When: Primarily weekday afternoons, but we also share weekend activities that are of interest. 

Where: Outdoor, nature-oriented locations primarily along the 680 corridor, from Sunol to Danville, but with occasional outings to other locations throughout the Bay Area. 

Why: To nurture a lifelong love of nature through fun, hands-on experiences, exploration, play, and education.

Also, as stated by Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children from Nature-Deficit Disorder, in the introduction to Jennifer Ward's book, I Love Dirt!, "study after study indicates time outdoors in a natural setting is not simply a nice-to-have activity. It is a vital element for healthy childhood development."

And, well, it's simply fun to get outside and play!!
