    Remember, every donation counts!

    Your support is vital to Deer Hollow Farm, an important regional environmental education center, hosting 100,000 visitors annually for free.

    Farm visitors come from 14 Bay Area cities to view the animals and walk through the “living history” barnyard. This year, Friends is providing tuition and busing for half the total 5,036 students coming to the 206 Farm classes from 48 Bay Area elementary schools in 14 cities.
