Though the summery month of July means hot, dry days, with parched golden meadows and animals retreating to shady pockets, there’s still plenty of life to discover. This month, Junior Rangers will head out on a scavenger hunt to discover high-summer wildflowers, cool hiding places where we may find animals and insects escaping the summer heat and more. 

Summer can also mean chilly fog at China Camp, so be sure to dress in layers to stay comfortable as weather warms up. Bring snacks and water, and remember to apply sunscreen and bug repellent..

This program will be guided by naturalists/educators Suzanne Mirviss and Paula O’Connell, and is best suited for ages 7 through 9. Children must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult.


Date: Saturday, July 9

Time: 10 a.m. – noon

Location: China Camp Village Beach

Ages: ages 7 to 9 




Space is limited; reservations required.

Free (donations appreciated).
