AAA Editor Notes
Effie Yeaw Nature Center is along the American River in Ancil Hoffman Park at 2850 San Lorenzo Way. In addition to hands-on exhibits, the nature center is home to animals—including birds, snakes and turtles—that were rescued and subsequently unable to be reintroduced into the wild. Three nature trails through the center's 77 acres provide opportunities for spotting wildlife such as deer, hawks, woodpeckers, jackrabbits and wild turkeys. Trailheads begin at the rear of the center.
Picnicking is permitted. Time: Allow 1 hour minimum.
