Irvine Nature Center

Irvine Nature Center is a non-profit environmental education organization whose mission is to inspire appreciation and respect for the natural world, to increase awareness of environmental issues, and to encourage individuals to sustain Earth's ecosystem.

We have 116 acres of green space, including trails through forests, meadows and wetlands. There is an exhibit hall with live animals and interactive displays. Don't miss the stunning view from the gazebo overlook, or the hand built wigwam!

Irvine also offers early education programs, including the Nature Preschool, Summer Nature Camp and Day Off Camps. Year round, there are free and low-cost programs for kids and families, including the popular "Meet the Critter" and "Junior Naturalists" series.

"Irvine is a great place to visit no matter what the weather is. My daughter loves the inside of the nature center just as much as the outside trails."

"This nature center is very sweet. It is near Garrison Forest. There are turtles, snakes and a cool bee hive where you can see bees busy at work (enclosed in glass). They have outdoor hikes and are always doing some great activity. The store there is so great. And it is nonprofit. Highly recommend. I have decided to send my kids there for camp after seeing the destination on Koddler. -Monica"

"We brought our 2 1/2 year old son to the Irvine Nature Center for a visit and he loved it. Indoors they have exhibits on local nature along with turtles and an active bee hive. Outdoors they have a wonderful trail to wander along and watch birds at feeders or visit with their rescue owl. We finished it off with a quick trip through their awesome store. Lots of neat books and things for you and the kids. We are going back!"
