The California Center for Natural History provides free outdoor education throughout the Bay Area. Our mission is to facilitate inquiry into the past, present and future of California's diverse ecosystems; create communities of culturally and experientially diverse naturalists; and illuminate the interdependence between humans and California’s wildlife.
