“Valley environment”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Effie Yeaw Nature Center has lots of exhibits concerning the valley ecosystem. In addition, it is the trailhead for several hours of self guided tour and walks along the river.

“WE NEED MORE PLACES LIKE THIS!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Effie Yeaw is an excellent example of the things this state is cutting and we are lucky to have it! My children have been to Effie Yeaw more than 30 times, and we actually never get enough of their facilities or their hiking trails! LOVE NATURE AT EFFIE YEAW!

“Excellent Place for family visit with children”
Reviewed November 26, 2013

Great trails. Good picnic ground. Interesting hands on exhibits for children. It is free, but you have to pay a fee to enter the county park where it is located.

“Great nature trails with lots of wildlife”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

On a recent trip to California my friend and I visited Effie Yeaw Center...it was a hot day but we enjoyed visiting the nature center, walking the trails, and we enjoyed dipping our toes in the river! Lots of wildlife, deer, turkeys, hawks,...it was a pleasure!

“Nature at its best!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We live in the area and have been bringing our family here for years. It is located in Ancil Hoffman Park. There is a small educational center with live animals and a rotating educational exhibit. But the highlight is the hiking trails. There are lots of trail signs that tell about the various native plants and wildlife. We often see deer and wild turkeys roaming around. The trails are well maintained and easy to navigate. There is no charge for the center or trails but they do charge a fee to enter Ancil Hoffman Park.
