We have filled all available spots for 2020. At this time we do not anticipate hosting virtual field trips in 2021.
Just like wildlife must adapt to the conditions that they are presented with in the wild, we have had to adapt to a new way of living during the COVID-19 Pandemic. While this illness has closed classroom doors, the education of our community's students continues thanks to dedicated teachers, through online learning. We want to do our part to help our educational community. This is a FREE service we are offering to any public school classroom in Sonoma County.
Sonoma County Wildlife Rescue is happy to announce that beginning in August 2020, staff veterinarian, Dr. Dan Famini, will be hosting live stream tours to classrooms throughout Sonoma County. It will be the teacher's choice if the session is held in the format of our previous weekly live streams, as an enrichment tour with one of our Wildlife Education Ambassador Animals or we can design a tour to cover a topic that matches your current curriculum. At this time, we are scheduling one class per week on Fridays for a virtual field trip with Dr. Dan Famini. These spaces will be filled on a first come, first served basis. Tours can be held over any option we have access to including YouTube Live, Zoom, Facebook Live. To help get more students connected to wildlife, we will be waiving the fee for this weekly event for public schools in Sonoma County. If you are interested in scheduling a virtual tour outside of this weekly event or if you are a private school, charter school or learning pod, we may be able to accommodate a virtual tour with another member of our team however, standard tour fees will apply and tours will be subject to staff availability.
If you would like to host a virtual tour with your classroom, please contact Kelsey James at firstname.lastname@example.org.
