The Big Bear Discovery Center is an educational and informational portal to the San Bernardino National Forest and is located in the heart of the Big Bear Valley. Our goal is to heighten visitor awareness on how to become a more responsible caretaker of the national forest while increasing their enjoyment and knowledge of the San Bernardino National Forest.
We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities for all interests. Some of those are Naturalist, Information Specialist, helping with Special Events (concerts, fundraisers, etc.), Visitor Greeter, School Programs, helping at the Adventure Outpost (a nature themed gift store), Campfires and Nature Nights, Crafts, and Nature Walks.
Orientation and training classes are held throughout the year. We welcome you to bring your skills and interests to the Discovery Center!
