I've come here with my children and really enjoyed it. Their summer kids camps are informative and fun for the kids. Our school used to take the children on field trips and hikes here, which is wonderful. They also offer really fun birthday party options.

Took a terrific class here on worm composting. Loved the place and the folks and learning more about what they offer. Check it out.

Placer Nature Center offsets an excellent opportunity to connect with the local nature and history/culture/arts. Programs change so it’s worth a repeat visit.

Love it! Such a cute little place, with exhibits better than some paid museums! Take your kids there. Often. Passionate people in a fun little setting with more added all the time!
