Wetland Round-Up Field Trip Program in Fremont

Newark Slough  Learning Center

Newark Slough Learning Center in Fremont

The Newark Slough Learning Center is located at 2 Marshlands Rd, Fremont, CA.  It is just south of the Dumbarton Bridge Toll Plaza near the Visitor Center and miles of salt marsh, tidal sloughs, mudflat and salt ponds. The Pumphouse, our environmental education "outpost," along with an amphitheater and Environmental Education Pavilion, serve as the hub of an extensive system of bridges, boardwalks and trails that make it easy to see and explore the San Francisco Bay habitats. 

Wetland Round-up Field Trip

Join us for a Wetland Round-up field trip program that investigates creatures of the mudflat, where you can taste pickleweed in the salt marsh, and explore the diverse habitats and wildlife of the refuge. All field trip activities are correlated to appropriate State of California Education Standards. 

Wetland Round Up field trips are unlikely to be offered in 2020 - 2021. 

We are working on ways we can support distance learning.

In the meantime, don't forget all of the great resources, and activities in the Salt Marsh Manual. Click here to access the activities. 

Check back here on October 1, 2020 for an update.
