Slide Ranch On The 4th

Slide Ranch offers a new way to enjoy Interdependence Day, in a celebration from 1:00-6:00 p.m. featuring activities that emphasize our dependence on animals and plants for food, clothing, and shelter.

This special program will include farm-based activities as milking goats, spinning wool, and feeding chickens, and making bread, cheese and butter to share at a picnic.

Slide Ranch is on the edge of the ocean in a large wilderness area just north of Muir Beach on Highway 1. The farm is rugged and hilly, but much of it is wheelchair accessible. Bring a picnic, something to barbecue, and a sweater for the cool breezes. The fee for Interdependence Day is $12 per person in advance, and there will be a limited number of drop-in tickets for $15 each. To register or for more information, call 381-6155.
