Tule Ponds informational 
Online Family Experience
no current online available come back in September
free, registration required

Since the Pandemic started Tule Ponds has been closed to the public.  Normally the Math Science Nucleus (a local non profit of scientists and educators) would have classes and small community events so the locals can see the restoration progress.  Math Science Nucleus  manages the facility for Alameda County Flood Control and Water Conservation District  and will be providing a series of 45 minute presentation including questions so we can update the community.  The presentations will be geared for families so even your little ones can learn through animations, video, and storybooks.

During the end of June and July we will open it up with tours  every Tuesday (June 22,29 July 6,13,20 and 27), one at 10am and 2 pm.  Registration will be required as we are limiting tours to 25 people.  We highly suggest that people attend one of the zoom presentations to get familiar with this 17 acre place.  Participants will be able to stay for up to 2 hours  (no dogs, strollers, bikes and must wear covered shoes). Registration information will be available in June.
