Programs for All Ages, Organizations, and Seasons
During Slide Ranch Family Programs, School and Community Programs and Summer Camp, visitors explore our organic gardens and learn about food from farm to fork; discover pastures and animal care by working with goats, sheep, chickens and ducks; study a rich marine ecosystem and tide pool network on our rocky shore; and survey the trails winding through coastal sage scrub that are home to quail, bobcats, deer, and coyotes.
People We Serve
Every year, Slide Ranch provides field trips and overnight camps to over one hundred schools and community groups from around the Bay Area. Students explore our farm and wild lands and learn about the interdependence of people and the environment, with a focus on food and farming. Slide Ranch is committed to engaging a diverse community. We keep program fees as low as possible and provide scholarships to 50% of all participants.
The Teacher-In-Residence Program
