For many years, we’ve been hosting field trips for 7th grade students in the Escondido Union School District. When COVID-19 necessitated the cancellation of this year’s field trips, we were determined to come up with an alternative that would still provide this year’s students with an opportunity to be introduced to many of the wonders of Daley Ranch.
Thanks to the generosity of donors and supporters, our terrific working relationship with the City of Escondido’s Park Rangers, the expertise and skills of some very talented professionals, and the unwavering dedication of our volunteers, our virtual concept has become a virtual reality.
This “Virtual Field Trip” consists of 21 educational videos. In them, you will be introduced to over 25 miles of trails on 3,150 acres of historical ranch lands and undisturbed native habitats. Equally as important, you will learn about the interconnectedness of the humans, plants and animals — both past and present – who have made Daley Ranch their home.
So now, let’s lace up our hiking boots and hit the virtual trail! Welcome to The Daley Ranch Connections!
