The Environmental Discovery Center at Spring Lake is staffed by naturalists happy to answer questions and help you enjoy your visit. Admission is free.
Exhibits and Sea Stars
The EDC features three rotating exhibits – Habitat & Home, Down the Drain and Fun in the Sun. All three focus on environmental stewardship and invite children to touch, climb, and play while they learn. Exhibits are designed by professional educators and reinforce California's life sciences content standards.
The EDC also features a tide pool with live, touchable sea stars as well as displays of live fish, turtles, and snakes, and taxidermied wildlife.
Naturalists host “Science Saturday” experiments on the second Saturday of each month. These are tangible, fun science experiments that explore the world around us.
