Review for Placer Nature Center, Auburn, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Placer Nature Center provides children and their families with the opportunity to enjoy, learn about and appreciate nature through the self-guided exploration of a wonderful nature center, as well as through guided school tours, special discovery days, summer camps and outreach activities. Tens of thousands of children have been touched by the nature center since it opened twenty years ago. When I first moved to the area five years ago, I quickly realized that the Placer Nature Center is THE leader in environmental education within the region. My family has participated in many of the excellent programs and activities and now I proudly serve on the Board of Directors. The Placer Nature Center is critical to ensuring the health, well being and sustainability of Placer County's residents -- human and wild -- for generations to come. Please support our efforts and join us to celebrate 20 years of success.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a local resident and now a board member, I have observed the talented staff and volunteers teach many people about the natural world. their work is outstanding and critical to the well being of our community and region.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to expand their reach far beyond their current capabilities. Limited financial resources limit their ability to provide programs to every school group that would like to visit.

Role:  Board Member & I and my family learned about nature and the environment, and met many like-minded community members.
