While Nevada City and Grass Valley celebrate the natural environment that surrounds us with Wild & Scenic Film Festival January 16-20, 2020, Morro Bay does its own take on nature with Morro Bay Winter Bird Festival the same weekend (Jan.17-20).

Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend is an ideal time to experience nature that surrounds you when National Parks Service lets everyone in free to the nation’s coveted wild & scenic park lands on Jan.20. It is one of several free admission days throughout the year celebrating more than 52 million acres of protected land.

Other wild and scenic events the same weekend include The Return of the Sea Lions to Pier 39 in San Francisco. Oh, the noise! Oh the ruckus! Oh the delight as tourists and locals watch these sea mammal bask in the sun or fight over a coveted spot. If you’ve ever watched them you know that once sea lion may come sailing out of the water and crash dive onto another with a prime bathing spot. There’s no subtlety in making a claim.

Other events courtesy of Mother Nature include the famed Napa Truffle Festival Jan.17-20. The gourmet delicacy is very wild and beloved in dishes complimenting local wines.

In Pleasanton you can take in the RV Show (Jan.11-20) offering a way to go see your next great outdoor adventure in the Golden State.

For another set of wheels to see the sights, head for Burbank’s BMX Spectacular at Valley Skate Park.

In Sacramento the International Sportsmen Exposition (January 16-19) at Cal Expo offers endless possibilities to fulfill your wildest dreams. The new year is anything but ordinary when you take a walk on the wild side to see California!
