Individual Field Trips

  • Elephant Seals at Ano Nuevo
    Ano Nuevo is the largest breeding colony for Elephant Seals. Because the colony is easily accessible via a short hike over the sand dunes, visitors are treated to an extraordinary opportunity to see the breeding colony up close. Tours are guided by volunteer naturalists, who explain the goings-on and keep the elephant seals and humans safe from each other.
  • Pumpkin Patch
    Have fun outdoors taking a tour of the farm, digging for potatoes, tasting fresh made cheese, and picking your own pumpkin.
  • San Francisco Zoo
    Spend time outside with your match exploring the fascinating world of different animals and their habitats at the zoo.
  • Swimming
    Cool off in the water and spend time building your endurance at the pool.
