Fullerton Arboretum is connected to Cal State Fullerton, and is an absolutely delightful place to spend a few hours. They have developed a wide variety of plants, and created a desert , a rainforest, and other unique areas, all on this little piece of land. The turtle pond is a perfect place to put the blanket down and eat lunch- today we saw either a heron or a crane (sorry, not a bird expert!), a bunch of tadpoles, tons of turtles, and a fish.
They have wonderful guides that encourage students to learn terms like "pollinator" and they make it all magical. I took my second graders twice this year so we could see how things look different in the fall and in the spring. But you don't have to have a guide to wander. Bring your camera, and see the world in an hour.
