Eugene O'Neill Historic Site & Lindsay Wildlife Hospital Tour

Sunday, March 8, 2015
8a - 6p
In the morning we will visit the Lindsay Wildlife Center, where more than 5000 injured and orphaned wild animals are cared for each year. At Wildlife Hospital: Behind the Scenes, we can observe the work of veterinary staff through one-way windows. It is also a natural history museum. We will see more than fifty species of non-releasable native California animals, along with changing natural history and art exhibits.

After a short drive to Danville you will be “released” onto Hartz Ave, where you will find a plethora of moderately priced eateries, whose cuisines consist of American, Italian, Greek, Chinese, Thai and Japanese, for lunch on your own.

For the highlight of our trip, we will enjoy a 21/2 hour guided tour of Tao House, the Pulitzer and Nobel Prize-winning playwright’s home from 1937-44. Isolated from the world within the walls of his sanctuary, O’Neill enjoyed stunning views of San Ramon Valley’s idyllic beauty, Mt. Diablo, and his Chinese-style gardens. This is where he wrote his most successful plays—“The Iceman Cometh,” “Long Day’s Journey into Night” and “A Moon for the Misbegotten.” The tour provides insights into O’Neill’s life, his marriage to wife Carlotta and his contributions to American theater.
