The Zeva Longley Scholarship for Nature Education
We are delighted with the success of the first year of Wildcare’s The Zeva Longley Scholarship for Nature Education. We are very grateful to the Rainbow Sandals Foundation for providing access to outings and activities that connect children and families to the natural world in a meaningful and inclusive way. The Zeva Longley Scholarship for Nature Education program is designed to help under-represented children and families residing in the Canal District of San Rafael overcome barriers to first-hand experiences in the outdoors in our region’s parks and open spaces.
On September 17th, a picnic for the scholarship recipients and families took place at China Camp Beach. This celebration included a guided hike, games, arts and crafts, and delicious food. The goal of this annual gathering is to nurture a community of nature learners and to encourage continued participation in these life-enhancing programs.
