State Park Wilder Ranch
We're looking for volunteers to help feed and tend to the resident animals. Families are welcome!
Date: Every day


Wilder Ranch Farm Animal Program Volunteers Needed!

Do you love Wilder Ranch and have a big heart for animals? Then do we have the opportunity for you! The Wilder Ranch Farm Animal Program is looking for volunteers to help feed and tend to the resident animals.

  Families are welcome! Children between the ages of 6-18 are encouraged to volunteer as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian while volunteering.

This is a long term volunteer position as the animals grow very fond of their caretakers, with the minimum commitment being 6 months. There are several shifts available with morning and afternoon feedings.

Prior animal experience is a plus, but you will be thoroughly trained by Animal Program Coordinator Sunny Schacher on your duties as a caretaker, and introduced to the goats, sheep, chickens and other animals that reside on the ranch.

 

For more information, please contact Sunny at the
Wilder Ranch Visitor Center at (831) 426-0505.

If there is nobody available to pick up the phone, please leave a message for Sunny and she will return your call as soon as she is able.

Steinbeck Festival
The 33rd Annual Steinbeck Festival is Old Home Week for Steinbeck lovers from across the world and down the street.
Date: Every day (May 3-May 5)


33rd Annual Steinbeck Festival - Theme is "HOME"

The 33rd Annual Steinbeck Festival is Old Home Week for Steinbeck lovers from across the world and down the street.

Join the National Steinbeck Center to celebrate its 33rd Annual Steinbeck Festival. The Festival Committee has declared “Home” as this year’s theme.

 

We will explore Steinbeck’s home – including Salinas, Cannery Row and the Pastures of Heaven. The Festival will feature talks, tours, films, food and the visual and performing arts.

 

"Houses and children and graves, that's home, Tom. Those are the things that hold a man down," said Ma Joad in The Grapes of Wrath.

 

John Steinbeck was born, raised and buried in the town of Salinas, California that is now home to the National Steinbeck Center. This home was a constant inspiration to him throughout his career as a writer and was the setting for many of his books and short stories.

 

The National Steinbeck Center presents its 33rd Annual Steinbeck Festival with tours and activities in locations that inspired John Steinbeck’s writing.  The festival is ‘Old Home Week’ for Steinbeck lovers from across the world and down the street, making it a a great opportunity for all to celebrate the communities of Salinas and beyond. This year's festival will include tours of Oldtown Salinas, the Salinas Rodeo and Ed Ricketts' lab on Cannery Row,as well as talks from various scholars. On Sunday, May 5, the Steinbeck Young Authors Awards Ceremony and a Community Free Day will take place at the National Steinbeck Center.

 

This is a great opportunity for all to celebrate the communities of Salinas and beyond. The 2013 Steinbeck Festival highlights those stories that can turn a row of houses into a Home.
