Just for Kids

Kids' Smiles

There are lots of fun activities for kids here at the refuge.  You can take part in guided programs that are scheduled on our activities calendar, or participate in self-guided activities like those listed here.  Although these activities are geared toward kids, adults have lots of fun too!  Just download and print the activity and take it with you when you come visit. Most files are in pdf. If you require a file in a different format, please call 510-792-0222 ext. 476.
