Mobile Education

About Mobile Education

Since 2009, the Mobile Education Unit has traveled to schools and community organizations in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties to provide hands-on learning opportunities. The Mobile Education Unit runs both a Mobile Visitor Center and Mobile Fish Exhibit.  

Mobile Visitor Center with visitors

Mobile Visitor Center 

The Mobile Education Naturalist team brings the park experience to you!  With our Mobile Visitor Center, we visit classrooms, senior centers, clinics, libraries and more across Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. We engage participants in educational activities on the natural and cultural resources of the Park District.  Learn more about some of our programs below or view Mobile Education Programs (PDF).

Community Event Tabling: We can bring our Mobile Visitor Center to your festival or outdoor gathering.  Engage with an East Bay Regional Park District Naturalist while learning more about our parks.

Naturalist in the Classroom: We can teach your group a variety of nature-related topics including: Birds of the East Bay, Botany, Reptiles/Amphibians, or Skull Detectives. 

Nature Walk: Experience the Regional Parks with a program hosted by one of our naturalists in the field. Themes (plants, birds or habitats) align with NGSS.

Mobile Fish Exhibit

Kids viewing the mobile fish exhibit

The Mobile Fish Exhibit is a 1500-gallon aquarium on wheels housing a diverse collection of California Freshwater Fish.

The Mobile Fish Exhibit provides a fantastic view of the otherwise invisible underwater world and is a great jumping off point for conversations about aquatic resource preservation and protection.

Large Special Events

Subject to availability, the Mobile Fish Exhibit can come to your outdoor, community-based, free, special event. Venues must meet site requirements, with a desired minimum of 500 participants. If interested, send us an email or submit an online application as a community group.
