Our focus is on creatures that are often underappreciated but play an important role in ecosystems of the world.
Mobile Animal Programs
We teach life science through interactions with live snakes, lizards and frogs. Empathy is created when we can understand how fragile and beautiful life is.
Our animal programs are fully hands-on and travel all over the San Francisco Bay Area to classrooms, summer camps and more.
Let’s work together to create wild space in our outside area that support health ecosystems. Much of extinction is due to habitat loss, so what can we do about it?
We have put together simple actions for our own outside spaces, whether that be a window flower box or 10 acres.
Join us as we build a wild space in our own urban backyards.
Richmond Science Center
We want to bring you a space where you will be able to walk with tortoises and pet snakes.
We are bringing science to you in a whole new way, while creating space for our community to learn about science.
More info coming soon.
Identification Guide to Bay Area Snakes
We started a San Francisco Bay Area Snake Identification Guide with a few of our most common backyard neighbors.
Check back as we add new critters.
If you have a question about an animal you found, send us a photo via e-mail of Facebook messenger and we will help you ID it.
