The Environmental Discovery Center will be closed Jan. 27-Feb. 11 and will re-open Feb. 12, 2020 with our "Down the Drain" Exhibit.
The Environmental Discovery Center at Spring Lake Regional Park is a natural history center featuring hands-on displays and exhibits designed primarily for children in elementary school.
At the Environmental Discovery Center, kids can:
- Learn about Sonoma County's ecosystems through exhibits that invite them to touch, climb, crawl, and imagine
- Explore a tide pool with live sea creatures, see live turtles, snakes and fish, and get up close to taxidermy wildlife like mountain lions and coyote
- Conduct earth science experiments and learn to look at surroundings in new ways
- Hike with a naturalist and learn about local plants and animals
The Environmental Discovery Center was established in partnership with the Sonoma County Regional Parks Foundation and Sonoma County Water Agency.
