Explore nature at your own pace and in your own way at Big Break All Abilities Day on March 26, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Drop in any time during the free event to join Big Break naturalists for nature exploration and activities. No registration is required. 

There will be a special 90th Anniversary presentation commemorating 90 years of East Bay Regional Parks at 10:30 a.m. during the story time program. 

The All Abilities Day program is FREE and inclusive for all abilities, with hands-on experiences, American Sign Language and Spanish-speaking interpreters on site, indoor and outdoor options, and wheelchair accessible programs and facilities. Over 450 children and adults attended Big Break’s most recent All Abilities Day in October of last year.

The program will feature several interpretive stations focused on various elements of nature. Visitors can enjoy walking, riding, and rolling along the paved and relatively flat Big Break Regional Trail and learning about the plants, animals, birds, and fish that call the Delta home. Travel along paved trails to visit stations to touch fur, listen to birds, draw wildlife, sit on benches to scan the water, or paint the view. Big Break All Abilities Day offers something fun for everyone.

Big Break All Abilities Day is made possible through funding from the Regional Parks Foundation (RPF). In 2023, the RPF awarded grants to fund American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and language translation. RPF has supported All Abilities Days since its inception in 2017.
