Building Community Through Partnerships
Santa clara valley
Our inclusive community has just gotten larger as Saved By Nature is now partnering with Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society (SCVAS). Together we can share our love of birding and nature. More information coming soon.
The Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society promotes the enjoyment, understanding, and protection of birds and other wildlife by engaging people of all ages in birding, education, and conservation.
Santa cruz county park friends
Santa Cruz County Park Friends happily joins Saved by Nature in partnership to lift and serve the youth of the county that have not had equal access to nature and outdoor spaces. Richard Tejada brings his naturalist wonder and whimsy to our Get OUTside enrichment camps to teach the kids about the ocean, explore tide pools and lead nature hikes. These outings will also be filmed by Richard to share virtually and reach more at home that cannot get outdoors.
An important overarching message of Covid awareness and best practices will also be conveyed as the cases of Covid among our Latinx and Black populations is alarmingly high. So, for the first time, these day camps will model proper distancing, mask use and hand cleaning during the sessions and for all to see and hopefully emulate at home.
Santa Cruz County Park Friends is proud to work with Saved by Nature towards a common goal of sharing the great outdoors with our youth of color.
Our Mission is to preserve, protect, improve and promote the use of Santa Cruz County parks and open spaces for
recreational activities, arts and cultural activities to benefit all generations in our diverse community.
wildlife education & Rehabilitation
Wildlife Education & Rehabilitation Center (WERC) joins Saved By Nature in a partnership directly impacting the youth enrolled in our Summer Science Project through the Boys & Girls Club of Silicon Valley. Participants are exposed to local wildlife through live bird presentations, inspiring appreciation and understanding of how to peacefully coexist with native wildlife in their communities.
W.E.R.C provides the community with rehabilitation services for orphaned, injured and sick native wildlife. Through our educational programs, W.E.R.C. encourages a peaceful coexistence between civilization and our native wildlife.
