Hidden Villa’s Environmental Education Program:
Connecting Kids to Nature for 50 Years.
Hidden Villa’s educational programs have been inspiring a sense of wonder and promoting an ethic of caretaking in school children, teens, adults, and families for 50 years. We are offering a variety of programs this fall to meet the needs of the community and to help create a supportive environment for all participants.
Our experiential programs are designed to support all types of learners of all different ages. We invite you to explore with us!

World of Wonders videos
Our World of Wonders (W.O.W.) videos are a wonderful way to explore Hidden Villa from afar. They come with support materials and ideas for how children can dig deeper into the topics.
The “Let’s Go!” Field Trip Fund provides affordable, easy-to-schedule, efficient, and safe transportation for youth (K-12) in the San Francisco Bay Area to experience science and environmental education field trips that may not have the opportunity otherwise. The “Let’s Go!” Field Fund, formally known as the Transportation Fund (TF), was launched in 2011 through a generous grant from the Environmental Education Funders Consortium and is facilitated through Environmental Volunteers.
