SANTA CLARA COUNTY, CA – Join us for Coyote Creek Habitat Day on Saturday, August 20 from 10am to 1pm for a free family-friendly day of activities, games, and wildlife connected with Coyote Creek. Learn about the people and animals who have made their homes along this waterway-both long ago and today.

The day will include an opportunity to meet wild nocturnal animals from the Wildlife Education & Rehabilitation Center, and participants can become wildlife detectives through hands-on activities like dissecting owl pellets and more.

  • Kids discover history as little archeologists by digging up pieces of the past
  • Make the nature connection by taking a hike
  • Bike along the Coyote Creek Parkway (personal bikes are welcome)
  • Participate in a self-guided scavenger hunt and other nature activities
  • Meet Morticia (California King Snake) up close and personal

The event will take place at Coyote Creek Visitor Center at Anderson Lake County Park (19245 Malaguerra Ave., Morgan Hill, CA 95037).

Admission to the Coyote Creek Habitat Day is free. Please consider walking, biking, carpooling, or taking public transit. A free shuttle is available from the parking lot at the nearby Live Oak Picnic Area.
