With concerns about youth detachment from outdoor activities, lack of physical exercise and increased health risks, the California Roundtable on Recreation, Parks and Tourism adopted the California Children’s Outdoor Bill of Rights for the purpose of recommending a fundamental list of experiences that every child in California would benefit from experiencing, before entering high school. Numerous studies document that children who do these things are healthier, do better in school, have better social skills and self-image, and lead more fulfilled lives.

You may purchase tickets on the day of the tour at 381 Breed Ave. or purchase tickets in advance at: • Zocalo, 645 Bancroft Ave. • Sabino’s, 1273 MacArthur Blvd. • Evergreen Nursery, 350 San Leandro Blvd. For information call: Patty Silva 636-4137 or email or visit the website at: fifteenth annual
