Environmental Nature Center

The 5-acre center features walking trails that showcase plants from 15 of California’s plant communities including a desert oasis, mixed evergreen forest, redwood forest trail, waterfall, and ponds. The center has play areas, a butterfly house, nature museum, plus a state-of-the-art Nature Preschool.

Community programs include Tiny Naturalists (parent and me style class), Mini Naturalists (ages 1-3) and Little Naturalists (ages 3-5). School field trips, after-school and vacation-break camps, scout programs, “bearthday” parties, and memberships are also offered.

KG Tip: Join the fun at the 48th Annual Fall Faire and Pumpkin Patch on October 15, 2023. Embark on a “Craft Crawl,” play nature games, watch performances, and pick up a pumpkin or two!
