The EV is kicking off the school year. Education director Brittany Sabol is telling the volunteers, who will be delivering our programs and our impact, about updates to our curriculum. She is getting us excited about the school year. There is no better spot to gather these nature lovers than in a park. We are so excited to share nature and science with elementary school kids in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. #siliconvalleyvolunteers #naturerocks #environmentaleducation #educateforaction #ngss #ngssscience

The EV’s on a canoe trip on the Baylands. One of our special events for our amazing volunteers. They do so much for us. They go into schools and welcome visitors to the EcoCenter. They delight school children on field trips. This is our chance to delight them and share a wonderful outdoor experience with them. #environment #siliconvalleyvolunteers #naturerocks #canoeing

Join Environmental Volunteers at the opening of a new exhibit at the Pacific Art League inspired by the beauty of our fragile planet called "The Blue Marble: Art for the Environment" The opening reception will be on September 6th from 5:30pm to 8pm.⠀ Pacific Art League’s Gallery Manager, Donny Foley curated arresting and beautiful images from seven artists, allowing each to exhibit several pieces, and therefore creating their own show, within a show. ⠀ Our goal with the show is to use it as the launch pad for a new art and the environment program PAL will announce this fall, Art Hikes for Kids, for underserved communities. “So often kids don’t get the chance to experience the beautiful natural environment so close to the urban sprawl of Silicon Valley. ⠀ The Santa Cruz Mountains offer an exceptional diversity of hiking trails and views across the stunning landscape rolling to the Pacific, and we want to give kids who have never been into this magical environment the chance to hike and breath and also to capture their reactions to the experience, through art” said Graves. ⠀ The exhibit will run through September 25th.⠀ @pacificartleague @nasa @sierraclub #pacificartleague #thebluemarble

It’s a hot day out in the Baylands today but the Rangers and Palo Alto Animal Rescue are out in full force. A Gull was not doing well and was suffering in the duckpond. The gull was taken to wildlife rescue to be evaluated for injuries and disease. If you see an injured animal in the Baylands, you can bring it to the attention of the Rangers or the EcoCenter staff.

Happy World Ranger Day! The EV brought treats and paid a visit to the Palo Alto Baylands Rangers. It was so fun to find a reason to go over and thank them for taking care of this beautiful place we call home. #lovenature #worldrangerday

It was a gorgeous Saturday on the Baylands for our canoe tour. For some it was their first time canoeing, and the Palo Alto Baylands is a great place to have your first experience on the water. Besides the views, and the interesting and different marsh plants, we saw a Batray in the water, a hawk getting mobbed by swallows and several Turkey vultures.⠀ Thank you for joining us. We hope you had as much fun as we did.

A very special evening with @groupmuse at the EcoCenter this evening. Hors d’oevres and desserts on the deck overlooking the Baylands and a cello concert. This is a special event honoring the people who supported bringing nature and science to school age kids in the Bay Area. Thank you @themarket_atedgewood for sponsoring the food. It’s delicious.

Volunteers help us repair kits all year long, and that includes during the summer. Having hands on activities means that kits lose parts and things get worn. We are also always creating new hands on activities and elements to the kits. ⠀ We truly take the feedback from classroom docents and student and teacher to create the best experience. Our volunteers make a huge difference to the quality of the experience for the students! #grateful #NGSS #environmentaleducation
