The state-of-the-art children’s eco-learning center and kitchen is the first of its kind of the Bay Area, and significantly enhances and expands Slide Ranch’s unrivaled, nationally renowned environmental education and lifestyle programming.

The Center is groundbreaking and gorgeous, featuring a commercial teaching kitchen, deck overlooking the Pacific Ocean, living roof, and fully accessible design.
