Who We Are
Wonderbug Adventures was created by two Bay Area moms, Hillary Blum and Melissa Walton, with backgrounds in environmental education and a passion for hands-on learning. Hillary and Melissa worked together for many years at a local environmental education organization.
With small children of their own, Hillary and Melissa recognized that there was a lack of programs which encouraged parents and their little ones to get outside and learn from nature. Drawing upon their professional and educational backgrounds, the two conceived of Wonderbug Adventures in 2008.
Hillary is a San Francisco-based mom with a 6 year old and 4 year old. A graduate of UC Santa Cruz, she has a background in early childhood education and has spent many years working in environmental education. She is a nature lover and enjoys seeing the natural world through the eyes of young children.
