The Explorers’ second fun Friday field experience was a nature excursion to Tilden Park in Berkeley. In the morning, the campers visited Tilden’s Little Farm where the campers experienced farm life. They fed lettuce and celery to goats, sheep, pigs, chickens, and cows. The animals were so friendly that they were following children and leaping onto the fences. It probably was all of the delicious vegetables the children had to offer!
After a picnic in the Tilden Nature Area, campers rode on a steam train, where they experienced an intimate look at all of Tilden Park and the greater surrounding Bay Area. Many children loved to feel the wind in their hair and smell of nature all around.
