Wacky Wilderness Days at the Nature Preserve

If you’ve ever wondered how Cache Creek was formed, come to Cache Creek Conservancy’s Wacky Wilderness “Rock-N-Roll” event Wednesday, July 12, at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve. Learn how rocks are formed from the fiery depths of a volcano or from compressed valley sediments. 

This will be the second Wacky Wilderness Day offered by the Cache Creek Conservancy at the Preserve. The program will run from 9:00-11:00AM for kids of all ages. This a fun-filled day that will include hands-on activities and topics like rock tic-tac-toe, rock art, how rocks are used in everyday activities, and how volcanoes are associated with Cache Creek. 

There are several other Wacky Wilderness Days scheduled at the Preserve. Over the course of the summer, children will have an opportunity to go into the creek, complete fun art projects, and play water games. These are activities for kids of all ages.

The remaining Wacky Wilderness Days include:
  • July 19th – Bugs in the Creek/Creek Health 
  • July 26th – Nature Art 
  • August 2nd – Fun, Fun, Fun with Water & Old Fashioned Games
