Creating a more sustainable world

At WildCare, we work to make sure all species can coexist— not just by treating sick or injured animals (nearly 4,000 of them a year), but also by teaching children and adults to understand and appreciate wildlife, by sharing knowledge and instructions on how to live peacefully with the animals among us and by advocating for better protection of wildlife and our remaining open spaces.

This integrated approach is essential to WildCare, and we address both the symptoms of human/wildlife interaction and their underlying causes. By doing so, we hope to create a more sustainable world for all.

Spring into Camp!

Spring Wildlife Camp - Reasons for the Seasons

How do animals cope with the changing seasons? Take a journey about the four seasons through the eyes of wildlife. Discover how different animals have adapted to survive the changing weather conditions throughout the year. Learn the science behind earth’s seasonal changes and how seasons vary across the globe. 

Join us for an unforgettable week during which campers will meet WildCare’s non-releasable Wildlife Ambassadors, explore Marin’s natural beauty, and nerd-out about all things wildlife. This week of camp is packed full of animal encounters, nature exploration, wildlife-themed games, crafts, and much more!

Participants will experience visits from WildCare’s Wildlife Ambassador Animals on non-field trip days. Campers will go on off-site excursions to Phoenix Lake on Tuesday and China Camp on Thursday.

Parents/guardians are responsible for providing transportation to and from the hike locations.

Growing up in the wild can be a tricky task!

Examine the fascinating ways different animals raise their young, the interesting adaptations baby animals have to survive in the wild and simple ways we can help to keep them safe from harm. Participants will experience daily visits from WildCare's Wildlife Ambassador Animals. No field trips for this session, however camp will go on short excursions to nearby Gerstle Park.

Campers must have attended pre-school, and all campers must be fully potty trained to be enrolled in WildCare’s camps. See Special Considerations for Pre-K campers below. 1A is the morning session, and 1B is the afternoon session.

Special Considerations for Pre-K Campers

All campers must be fully potty trained to be enrolled in WildCare's Camps. This means they must be independent in all aspects of using the bathroom as WildCare Camp staff is not permitted to assist campers in any way while in the bathroom. Potty trained campers:

- Can tell the teacher when they need to go to the bathroom
- Can attend to their own hygiene without adult assistance
- Can fasten their own clothing

*Due to HPAI, WildCare’s center is closed to the public. HPAI is a new strain of avian flu that is not a health concern for humans, but can be deadly to many types of birds and can be brought in to our center on shoes and clothing, putting WildCare’s Wildlife Ambassador birds and hospital patients at risk.

WildCare’s Growing Up Wild Camp will be held at Short School, located at 35 Marin St. in San Rafael.
