Everyone wants to do the right thing for wildlife… WildCare is here to help! They are located in downtown San Rafael, California — Marin County’s largest city — making them a truly urban wildlife rehabilitation center.
WildCare works to make sure all species can coexist– not just by treating sick or injured animals (over 3,000 of them a year), but also by teaching people how to live peacefully with wildlife and by advocating for better protection of wildlife and our remaining open spaces.
In addition to operating their wildlife rehabilitation hospital, they also provide numerous other resources to the local and larger community. Their Living with Wildlife Hotline is available any time of day or night to help anyone deal safely with the wildlife they encounter. They’ve also been a leader in developing new and innovative ways to address problem wildlife issues humanely. And when wildlife needs us to advocate on its behalf, they take a stand. All these activities help foster an understanding of and appreciation for wildlife in all people.

San Anselmo Cooperative Nursery School
Founded originally in 1947 as the Fairfax Community Nursery School, the San Anselmo Co-Op is celebrating its 65th year in operation. Except for the faces of the children and their parents, since then little has changed. The goal of the preschool is to foster physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual growth in each child. The school provides a unique experience for families who wish to be involved in their children’s education and learn alongside them. By sharing parenting issues, insights, joys and struggles, parents gain a sense of community with one another and a greater understanding of their own child’s development. Through their participation, parents create the kind of school they desire for their children. Their many talents, strengths and interests provide the energy that fuels the school. By relying on parent ingenuity, teamwork and labor, we keep fees low and the school available to a wide spectrum of people. Find out more at www.sananselmocoop.com.
