Mission Statement

El Dorado Nature Center is dedicated to the enhancement of wildlife habitat and the human spirit. Through education, citizen involvement opportunities, habitat restoration, and leisure activities, the Center cultivates among all members of the community a sense of respect, understanding and stewardship for the natural world.

Description

Looking for a bit of nature in the middle of the city? Nestled between the San Gabriel River and the 605 Freeway, El Dorado Nature Center is an oasis of natural habitat, offering visitors the chance to escape the hustle and bustle of the urban environment. The nearly 100 acres that make up the Nature Center grounds provide sanctuary to over 150 species of birds, a wide variety of trees and plant life and many species of urban wildlife including turtles, frogs, rabbits, skunks and squirrels. Two miles of dirt trails and a ΒΌ mile paved trail wind around two lakes and a stream and through forested areas, grasslands and wildflowers. Many thousands of visitors come each year to walk the trails and experience the beauty and serenity of nature. Others visit as part of a school tour, guided walk or other educational program. The center also builds ties with the community through a strong volunteer program, special events and as a community resource for education on the environment.
