This is such a special little place. It is tucked away in the woods just south of Huntington Beach. Lake Erie Nature center lets you learn about local wildlife and the best part is it is free.

Science and nature learning center. Injured animals can be helped here and returned to the wild. A great place for children - and adults - interested in wildlife and science.

Free or donation. Local animal life and environmental displays. Clean. Pleasant. Informative. Well managed. ~1/2 hr to hr walk-thru. Many family oriented programs - see dates on website. If you're taking kids to the beach, stop here.
