festival with music

So much fun. Great crafts and good live music. Most exciting thing was taking a picture with two wolves! Beautiful atomosphere.

Go all the way to the end of Modjeska Canyon and you'll find this little jewel of an attraction. There is no fee to walk the trails and enjoy the scenery, especially the birds. It is peaceful and beautiful.

Benjamin Tucker, a Long Beach banker, started it all back in 1926 with his homemade feeding stations and love for our feathered friends. For the next 15 years, Mr. Tucker's dozen acres became a magnet for countless local and migratory birds. For the next 27 years after that, the Audubon Society kept things going and birders coming.

SO much fun and so well-organized, thank you so much for putting on this cool bat information seminar and fun day! Great stuff for kids and great tours, loved the hayride and great storyteller on board. It was my first time there and I will be back, I hear there is a wolf seminar day in November. Thanks!

Hidden away in the Orange County hills, at the end of Modjeska Canyon, you will find Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary. Less than an hour from anywhere in Orange County, Tucker is a wonderful place to spend a few hours with nature. You will find an unbelievable number of different birds making their home here and even more during migrating season: red-headed... More

Drive to the end of romantic Modjeska Canyon off the well-traveled Santiago Canyon and enter into an rural community just minutes from bustling Orange County cities such as Orange and Anaheim Hills. The quiet is soothing. Hiking is great there too, but bring lots of water because there is no shade thanks to the fires that consumed most of the... More

Just went there for bat night. Excellent night and it raised money for UC Fullerton. Lots of activities for the kids. Nice tranquil location.

This place is hidden away at the end of Modjeska Canyon so a lot of people don't ever get there for a visit - too bad because it's an incredible place for nature lovers. There are birds of all types visiting the bird feeders - there are also a large variety of interesting plants throughout the grounds and benches to... More

We live nearby and wanted to go hiking one Saturday. We came upon the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary on accident and decided to stop and visit. What a fun spot for the kids! We sat and watched birds for nearly half and hour. We must have seen 6 or 7 species during our watch. The folks inside the museum are extremely... More
