Terwilliger Nature Education Programs
For over 35 years, WildCare’s Terwilliger Nature Education Programs have provided Bay Area teachers with environmental education opportunities inspired by the legacy of Elizabeth Terwilliger.
Mrs. Terwilliger developed an interactive, experiential type of learning that is still at the heart of our education programs today. Our programs aim to strengthen environmental stewardship and responsibility by teaching an appreciation of nature and a respect for wildlife.
WildCare’s education programs support the Next Generation Science Standards and our instructors are glad to incorporate the themes of your class curriculum into our programs whenever possible. Scholarships are available.
WildCare offers a variety of environmental education programs to Bay Area schools, senior centers, scout troops and camps—at our site, at your site, or in the field!
WildCare’s Wildlife Camps are available for children from 3 ½ -12 years old. Weekly sessions of day camp are offered at our center in summer, winter and spring.
WildCare’s courtyard is home to a variety of non-releasable rescued wildlife—our Wildlife Ambassadors! The courtyard is open to the public every day and admission is free.
Enjoy a FREE day of discovery and learning out in nature with the family. WildCare naturalists will lead fun family outings in both English and Spanish, with the objective of deepening our commitment to take care of the planet.
