Connect with Nature as Never Before at the Lindsay Wildlife Experience

January 06, 2020

At the Lafayette Park Hotel, we’ve long prided ourselves on combining the best of two worlds—the metropolitan dynamism of San Francisco’s East Bay area and the lush natural splendor of the Northern California countryside. If you happen to have kids in tow and you’re looking to connect with nature in a fun and informative environment, we highly recommend a trip to the Lindsay Wildlife Experience, just a 15-minute drive from our hotel. The Lindsay Wildlife Experience started 65 years ago as a museum dedicated to promoting awareness of the region’s native animals. Nowadays, the facility is split into two related entities: a thrilling interactive museum for kids and a cutting-edge medical center that rehabilitates thousands of animals each year. At the museum, you and your kids will learn about all sorts of fascinating creatures, including winged raptors, western pond turtles, rattlesnakes, tiger salamanders, and many more. At the rehabilitation center, you can watch through glass dividers as skilled veterinarians perform life-saving surgeries and other rehabilitative procedures.
