This experience includes:
In the morning, we’ll participate in an easy and fun 60-90 minute “service-learning” volunteer activity. The second half of the day enjoy a picnic lunch, followed by a relaxing afternoon break enjoying craft beers or boutique wine at a local family friendly venue.
We’ll pick you up at 9am and drive together in our zero-emission Tesla Model X to a peaceful local community beach. There you’ll learn about the natural environment of the San Francisco Bay shoreline. We’ll introduce you to the Bay ecosystem, the birds and marine mammals we are most likely to see during our time together. Part of the discussion will also focus on the issues of microplastics and other factors impacting our marine environment. You and your kids can ask questions about any wildlife and landmarks you see from our knowledgeable guides. Be able to identify common local seabirds and tell the difference between the Pacific Harbor Seal and California Sea Lion!
We’ll then kick off approximately one-hour volunteer service time. We’ll apply our sun protection, gear-up and have a quick instruction about how we’ll work together as a team to remove litter and clean up our beach before they can cause harm to wild species. All supplies for the activity, including a variety of protective gloves and trash/recycling receptacles will be ready and waiting for you. Fun treats and prizes for participation!
All the while your guide(s) will be on hand to take family pictures of your “team” in action. Images captured on our devices will be provided digitally to you after the experience, as our way of saying thank you.
During the activity, your guide will also be setting up a delicious light and healthy picnic lunch. We’ll bring the beach blankets (chairs for grown-ups, if desired), and picnic basket with all the goodies. Your basket will include your preference of omnivorous or veggie antipasto spread, non-alcoholic chilled beverages, sanitizing hand-wipes and all the necessary service ware.
To conclude our day together, we’ll jet over to one of our wonderful local craft breweries. This family-friendly establishment pride itself on welcoming guests with a warm, relaxed ambiance, AND top-notch artisan brews. The adults in your group can enjoy an included tasting flight worry free, as we’ll be your designated driver! Non-alcoholic refreshments are also provided.
(If you want, we might be persuaded to distract your children for a bit if you’d like to enjoy a few moments of adults-only conversation. Wink, wink.)
If you choose to upgrade to a full-day experience, we can also add these optional visits to nearby-attractions:
Explore a decommissioned aircraft carrier that played a major role in the Allied victory in WWII, and recovered the Apollo-11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin returning from their famous moon walk!
For serious history-fans, pop into an eclectic military museum, celebrating the legacy of brave local servicemen and women throughout the 20th Century (this is probably more interesting for adults).
Both sites are staffed by passionate volunteers who are often retired military, and love sharing personal stories of their time in uniform. Admission (valued at up to $120) is included in the enhanced experience).
At the end of your experience, we’ll return you to your home or lodging having enjoyed a fun and fulfilling family-day on the Bay!
