WildCare’s Family Nature Day Honoring Elizabeth Terwilliger

Our first annual Family Nature Day was a great success! The event took place on April 21, 2018, and more than 175 people participated.

What happened at WildCare’s Family Nature Day? People of all ages took naturalist-led hikes on the Terwilliger Trail where they spotted Pacific Chorus Frogs, snakes (including a King Snake and a Garter Snake), Black-tailed Deer, a baby California Newt, Red-winged Blackbirds, Red-tailed Hawks, Turkey Vultures and other species. Kids of all ages participated in an aquatic study with nets in a pond at Stafford Lake, and everyone enjoyed meeting WildCare’s Wildlife Ambassadors. Between all this and facepainting, the Nature Scavenger Hunt Challenge and arts and crafts, it was a splendid day!
