Join CalWild and partners as we introduce Central Valley community members, with a focus on Latinx families, to camping! We'll be near and amidst our local public lands in the Sequoia National Forest from July 17-18 for an overnight camp with plant and bird identification activities planned for July 17th. Basic camping equipment will be provided (tents, sleeping bags, sleeping pads, cooking supplies, water bottles) but attendees should bring extra clothing for both hot daytime activities and colder nighttime sleeping. Food will also be provided.In-kind donations from our sponsors Keen, Camelbak, and Juniper Ridge mean you'll be able to take home some of the equipment so you can further explore California's public lands after this trip.
