Take a Child Outside Week September 24-30 is an international effort to help children discover our natural world. During this week, parents, teachers, and other caregivers are encouraged to take children outside to explore and enjoy their surroundings. The Dublin Library is hosting two programs to help families get outside.

Ever wanted to go camping but without the long car ride?

On Wednesday September 24 at 6:30pm naturalist Katie Colbert will talk about Sunol Regional  Wilderness, an East Bay Regional Park only 15 miles from Dublin.  Families will find out all the secrets of  this little bit of wilderness in their own backyard.  

  • Did you know you can stay overnight at the park?  
  • That you can visit “Little Yosemite” ? 
  • That “The Old Green Barn” is filled with information?       

Learn all the answers and ask questions of your own.
