Vargas Elementary is participating in Wildlife Associates’ pilot science program, which is designed to look at a real-life environmental problem and have students think about how they could address it, and in the process empower them to realize they are capable of solving an issue to which even adults do not have the answer.

Wildlife Associates is taking our environmental stewardship and science education up another notch by installing a solar array at our Half Moon Bay wildlife sanctuary.
We are partnering with San Francisco based non-profit Everybody Solar to raise the funds necessary to make this solar dream a reality. The goal of the project is to build a 25 kilowatt solar energy system at our facility, helping us offset 90% of our current electricity costs and carbon footprint.
In addition to financial savings, this project will also allow us to increase the breadth of our science education by serving as an example of clean energy use. It will also demonstrate how solar energy in particular is a readily available and viable option for combating climate change and air pollution.
You can help us become a more sustainable organization both environmentally and economically by supporting this project today!

April 2014 | We are so happy to announce that the 4th grade class of Sea Crest School in Half Moon Bay has “adopted” Tahoe, one of our grey foxes. The 4th graders are collecting funds by recycling CRV bottles and cans, and they will donate the money to help provide food, medical needs, and enrichment toys for Tahoe. Tahoe visited Sea Crest today, and taught the students about the important work that foxes do in the wild and the importance of caring for the environment. Not only will the 4th graders be helping keep our planet clean, they will also be helping us care for Tahoe. A big WILD thank you to the Sea Crest School 4th grade!
