On this edition of Your Call, we’re discussing fun activities for kids, teens, families and adults this summer throughout the Bay Area. As kids younger than 12 years are unable to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and California has lifted its mask mandate, some families don’t feel comfortable enough to do indoor activities.

We discuss free city nature walks, activities at our state and national parks, and free events happening at our local public libraries. What activities are you planning to do this summer?
