  • What a lovely way to spend an afternoon just before Christmas! The Center was uncrowded, quiet and serene. After living in the area for over 25 years this was our first visit and certainly will not be...  more »
  • Take a friend, your camera and stay for awhile. Nice, open paths all the way to the American River. Well worth more than one visit. It changes with the seasons.  more »
  • I live near Effie Yeaw and visit there as often as possible. It is a nature reserve on the American River, so you can see both field and water birds My family attended the 6 week 100 bird ID class wit...  more »

  • This is a frequent stop for our family for nature walks. Even when it's crowded, it's fairly easy to get away from everyone to see mule deer, rabbits, wild turkeys and a host of birds. The trek to the Rivers edge is over the flood plain with a lot of larger rocks which can be challenging for smaller, or older, participants, but otherwise great walking for all ages. The nature center is small but very educational, usually with some critters in display and knowledgeable docents to teach us and the kids.
  • Take a moment and go here. Its a great place to take your family. You can go in the building and learn a little bit about some animals or enjoy the trails. The scenery is beautiful. The only two things that are a bummer are that you cannot bring your doggie, nor can you ride your bike. But, there are plenty of parks and trails where you can. Its worth it.
  • Great place to experience riparian flora and fauna close to urban and suburban Sacramento. Great place to bring children to see raptors, reptiles and insects found in the reserve. Great place to take short hikes in riparian habitat. Nice visitor center / bookstore, too.
  • I just had my first visit here after passing it everyday on my way to work. It's secretly nestled amongst houses off of busy La Riviera blvd. I came just to use as a backdrop for pictures of my child but I definitely need to come back and make a day of it. There is a nature center you can take the kids to, a golf course, a huge open field, and hiking. From my brief visit this place is a welcome break from a busy life.
  • Awesome hiking adventure..Great learning experience for kids.. Should include more activities for them though.. Positive environment.. We also saw deer!
