WildCare’s Terwilliger Nature Guides have created three exciting Virtual Nature Hikes to bring the forest and grassland habitats to your students during distance learning.

Using the interactive techniques of Mrs. Terwilliger, your students will learn about the adaptations of our local plants and animals.

Who lives in the redwood forest? What plants and animals are used by the Coast Miwok? What do Dusky-footed Woodrats store in their stick houses? Why do fence lizards do push-ups? Students will learn the answers to these questions as well as what makes each ecosystem special.
