Latino Americans Events: 500 Years of History 


Peralta Hacienda Historical Park has been selected to receive a competitive Latino Americans: 500 Years of History grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the American Library Association (ALA).

As one of 203 grant recipients selected from across the country, CAHC will receive a cash grant of $10,000 to hold public programming - such as public film screenings, discussion groups, oral history initiatives, local history exhibitions, multi-media projects or performances - about Latino history and culture. 

Urban Wildlife Activities 

Spring 2016, Weekends, February to May 

Children 5-15 will enjoy a wide range of habitat and wildlife experiences in a series of hands-on stations, as well as guided walks within the park, with a wealth of additional activities tailored to middle schoolers.

Children and youth learn important concepts such as 'ecosystem,' 'habitat,' 'indigenous,' and 'introduced,' with living examples in the park, and become aware of the species with whom they are sharing the land.

This Program is made possible by the Habitat Conservation Fund Program. 

The Athena Project
