Join WildCare in partnership with Richardson Bay Audubon for a Family Nature Day honoring Elizabeth Terwilliger on Saturday, April 27 from 10 am – 2 pm at Richardson Bay Audubon in Tiburon.

Learn about our local wildlife “Mrs. T-style!” Go on a naturalist-led hike, create a wildlife themed craft, take the scavenger hunt challenge, use spotting scopes to watch birds from the patio of the historic Lyford House, meet live non-releasable wildlife, and much more.

Bring a picnic to enjoy, or buy lunch from the food truck. Other organizations attending and offering activities are Friends of China Camp, Marin County Parks, Marin Humane, One Tam’s Roving Ranger, International Bird Rescue, and The Marine Mammal Center.

Elizabeth Terwilliger, known best as “Mrs. T,” was an inspiration for generations of Marin County residents. Her multi-sensory approach to teaching children about nature engendered a lifelong love of the natural world, and a desire to protect it in the hearts of the thousands. The children that went on hikes with Mrs. T grew up to be the environmental advocates overseeing the protection of Bay Area wildlands today.

Marin County is a better place thanks to Mrs. T, and both her legacy and her creative and compelling teaching methods live on at WildCare. This event is in her honor.

This is a FREE event and free street parking is available!
