  • Summer on the Farm in the South BayHistoric Milk Barn and Tank House at McClellan Ranch Preserve

    June can be a great month to get out with your kids! The longer daylight hours stretch the window of opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors. Not sure where to go? Luckily the Bay Area has many options whether you’re focusing on the South Bay or beyond. It can be helpful to have a point of interest as an incentive. This month, as part of the Take a Hike (with the kids) series, the featured hikes are farm-centric, giving those youngest hikers a chance to explore farm life and farm animals with a little hiking mixed in. Many baby farm animals have recently arrived in the spring to add to the fun!
