  • Fantastic opportunity to view nesting egrets. This year I counted 11 nests and in early April, 6 egrets to date. They are flying in and out and feeding at the lake. The lake view is lovely with many f...  more »

  • What a great little nature preserve right in the heart of Huntington Beach! There are nice trails and lots of shade. cute little lake with mature willow trees. They even have a grove of redwoods in the preserve. They have a nice little gift shop and super clean restrooms. I would definitely recommend this place if you need a quick connection with nature. Saw lots of birds, lizards, and butterflies.
  • This is a great place to take your kids to explore and take a walk in the "wilderness". It is maintained by the volunteers. It is free, but they except donations. You can drop a bill in the donation box at the entrance. They also have a center there that is set up to learn and play. They also have many fun activities there for the family. We love this place!
  • Amazing little spot to get away from the city and experience nature. Volunteers are very helpful and welcoming. Lots of walking for kids if you want to wear them out.
  • I love Shipley Nature Center. My son is in a summer camp there this week. He loves going there and I love taking him! I guess it was a junk yard before it was a nature center.
  • My daughter and I went on the first field trip ever and we had the great time there with her classmates, school and Shipley Nature Center staff. Great learning experience!
