  • 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 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.
  • Interesting place with some history and biology lessons for young and old alike. You need at least 4 hours to be able to see the whole area and appreciate the displays. Do not go on a very hot day and there is an entrance fee of $5 per vehicle. Expect hiking, so dress appropriately and bring your own drinking water.
  • I have been coming here since childhood. It is beautiful and lots of wildlife can be seen. They also do field trips for kids where they can learn about the wildlife and indigenous plants.
  • We really enjoy visiting the Effie Yeaw Nature Center! The paths are clearly defined, there's so much to see and learn!
  • Absolutely love it. Nature center is very hands on for the kids and they have live animals for the kids to see. The trails are well maintained and there is a lot of deer along the way. Short walk to the river. We had a great day.
