  • Spring is the best time to go here when everything is green and the deer are out. But every time I go here I see different birds, Turkey, frogs in the pond, and different insects if you're looking for them. Awesome place to come to enjoy nature nature. Definitely my favorite place in Sacramento. Easy access to the river to see lots of salmon during the season. No dogs allowed.
  • I absolutely love the nature center in Carmichael along the Sacramento River! The place has always had a fond place in my heart, its shared itself with former love interests making for enjoyable times. Its also seen me hiking solo through the preserve whenever I need to collect my thoughts and perhaps cool my jets by going all zen with mother nature! The grounds are well kept, clean, plenty of parking, helpful staff and plenty of drinking fountains for those hot summer days!
  • Nothing like outdoors! And an inside nature center for the kids to check out.
  • I volunteer here doing habitat restoration. It's a great place to take kids to teach them about nature and the native people who used to live there.
  • Awesome place. Great center, great staff, and cool stuff for the whole family on Saturday's and Sunday's.
