Detailed Information:
Organized by community volunteers in 1991 on a beautiful woodland site near Auburn, Placer Nature Center presents environmental-based education programs for all ages. Our Exhibit Halls, Discovery Laboratory, history gardens and nature trails annually attract 8,000 school children and community members for school field trips, summer nature camps and classes, geology and flower walks, art and astronomy classes, live theatre and much more.

Placer Nature Center offers environmental education programs designed to promote an understanding and awareness of the natural environment, cultivate scientific literacy and stimulate stewardship attitudes toward the earth. Environmental education focuses on environmental "literacy": learning about and caring for the total environment, understanding how humans interact with and are dependent on natural ecosystems and developing critical-thinking skills to resolve environmental issues.
