Marin County Outdoor School & Retreat Center
Since 1990, Walker Creek Ranch has been a place for people to connect with each other, their communities, and nature. Each year, we serve 5,000 students in our overnight outdoor education programs. We host an additional 5,000 guests each year for private retreats, family reunions, weddings, and more. We pride ourselves as a community that welcomes all people to experience the beauty of Wild West Marin.
We offer 1,700 acres of open space in the heart of Wild West Marin. Walker Creek flows year-round through clusters of alder trees and bay laurel forest, providing habitat for endangered species like Coho salmon. Over 20 miles of walking trail offer adventures for you, featuring a panoramic view from the top of Walker Peak and sightings of deer, fox, river otters, and newts.
"The naturalists are wonderful. They gain the trust of all of the students very quickly, and they engage our students in all of the activities."
