Join this morning walk on Earth Day to celebrate science and the fact the Early Learners are Scientists.... Naturally!

Children and families are invited to join the walk from Hilliard Comstock Northwest Community Park to the Children's Museum of Sonoma County. Dress as your favorite scientist or come as yourself (pro-science signs welcome but this is a non-partisan event). Complimentary passes to the Children's Museum for the first 100 participants ages 0-5 plus their caregiver courtesy of First 5 Sonoma County.


Convene at the play structures in Hilliard Comstock Northwest Community Park at 9:30 a.m. and begin the walk at 10 a.m. Parking is available at Comstock Middle School or by the softball field (Turn at light at Comstock Middle School Road), or limited parking at 4cs Willow Creek State Preschool (off of Marlow Rd). Restrooms are near the softball field and at the Comstock parking lot.


Wear comfortable shoes, and take water and a packed lunch. (Snacks may be available at the Museum).


From the March for Science: "Science protects the health of our communities, the safety of our families, the education of our children, the foundation of our economy and jobs, and the future we all want to live in and preserve for coming generations.... Inclusion, diversity, equity, and accessibility are central to the mission and principles of the March for Science" (This is not an official satellite event but follows the same principles.

Partners for this event include: Together We Will Stand Indivisible, Petaluma, Children's Museum of Sonoma County, First 5 Sonoma County, Early Learning Institute, Sonoma 4Cs, Parent Voices, and River to Coast Children's Services.
