Winter Camps 2016
All the inhabitants of San Francisco are hunkering down for the winter season, thriving on stored food from the fall gatherings. All animals, including those of us at Tree Frog Treks, are finding ways to explore their environment and how it has changed since summer. Even in temperate Central California, a trained naturalist can observe seasonal behaviors and environmental factors intrinsic to winter.
Join Tree Frog Treks and our experienced Wild Science team as we discover the wild side of San Francisco! We will travel to local parks to discover the amazing plants and animals who inhabit our beautiful city, from soaring Red-tailed Hawks to slimy Slender Salamanders.
During each camp session, campers will meet live animals, perform fun experiments and build leadership and critical thinking skills through adventuring in nature with peers and instructors. Come meet Blondie the Burmese Python, Ivan the African Spur Thigh Tortoise, Squiggles the Asian Water Dragon, and Stickum the White’s Tree Frog - to name some of our nearly 100 Animal Ambassadors! We play games and tell stories to bring many unseen aspects of our urban habitat to life for our campers.
It's the perfect time to get out and get dirty, so put on your explorer hat, grab your binoculars and bug nets, and let's hit the trail for some science fun!!!
