Honor Earth Day at a historic ranch and 18-acre nature preserve that’s rarely open to the public. Meet red-legged frogs and western pond turtles, try out DIY gardening projects, and take part in nature-themed arts and crafts, face painting, and games. Tour the meadows, woodland, ponds and streams, and the historic home site of Theodore Wagner, California’s first surveyor general. Chester Miner and his Native American drummers start the day at 11:30am with traditional drumming and chanting. Bring a picnic, or purchase food and beverages at the event. Free admission. Sorry, no dogs or other pets. Info: here
