Youth Science Institute is a non profit organization that has been educating the public and local schools about science and nature since 1953. This year is Youth Science Institute's 33rd Annual Wildlife Festival, and it's also our 65th Anniversary! Every year, we invite a variety of vendors and exhibitors to YSI's Alum Rock Park location, and we educate the public about, like face painting, crafts, and games, as well as guided nature walks, We also feature a stage where we have various exhibitors speak about what their mission to protect wildlife, and give education about their organizations and what the public can do to help. We bring out live animals that the public wouldn't normally see face to face, and we also have story time with Smokey the Bear, as well as Fire Fighters coming to speak about fire safety, and let kids try on their safety gear. This event is completely free to the public, so we are always searching for ways to raise money to help cover funds. We would be very appreciative of any funding for this wonderful and educational day!
