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

Every time I visit it looks different because of all of the work they continue to do here. The staff is awesome and you see them out working cleaning up and making sure the bird... More

On our fall outing of the local canyons, we made a quick stop at the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary. We didn't have time to go sit on the restful bird porch but our group did enjoy the Natural Science Center. There were displays of local wildlife, stuffed and alive as well as a gift shop with hummingbird items made by local... More

I love the small town atmosphere and just the general outdoors of the location. People are always willing to be helpful and explain things.
