Chabot May programs include space exploration and hikes

Submitted By Chabot Space & Science

Chabot Space & Science Center?s schedule of public events and activities for May through July will fill the Center and follow the seasons outdoors for an event-filled spring and summer for all ages. Summer camps for grades one through six have limited space available for registration and run from June 25 through August 3.


Bring the whole family along as we take a gentle two- to three-mile walk among the majestic redwoods to the highest point in Oakland, Redwood Peak. While hiking we will explore evidence of ancient trees from 2,000 years ago, uncover markers from the early settlers from the 1800s, and learn about the local plants and animals that live in the forest.
