Alexander “Sandy” Lindsay started teaching neighborhood children about nature in the early 1950s. He soon drew parents in to help. This group of civic-minded people incorporated as the Diablo Junior Museum Association with a governing board of directors in June 1955. Initially housed in an elementary school, the museum began offering school age children summer classes and field trips focused on the natural world. The institution’s name was changed to the Alexander Lindsay Junior Museum in 1962 to honor its founder after his premature death at age 44.
Lindsay Wildlife currently serves more than 100,000 visitors each year, including 40,000 school children. Approximately 600 volunteers are active in the Lindsay’s work, contributing more than 120,000 hours of service each year to education, wildlife care, operations, fundraising and outreach.
