Located at the foot of the Jurupa Hills, the Mary Vagle Nature Center is a natural refuge in the midst of an urban landscape. Here you can enjoy a walk along the nature trail winding around the pond, spot what is currently blooming in our native gardens, and venture inside for both live and static displays of the native area.

We encourage people to take part in enjoying the natural world that surrounds us every day by just visiting us or even taking part in our programs which include: wildlife education, exploratory sessions for local plants and animals, discovering the earth and soil with geology, and the creatures that crawl beneath our feet.
