Bear Creek Nature Center
Please note: To accommodate nature camp scheduling, Bear Creek Nature Center will be CLOSED to the public June 21-25, July 12-16 and July 26-30. We will be open on Saturdays of these weeks from 9am to 4pm.
Hike the foothills, search for mule deer, and discover Bear Creek! Scrub oak thicket, ponderosa pine forests, meadows, a mountain creek, and abundant foothills wildlife attract children and adults to Bear Creek Regional Park and Nature Center. Interpretive programs, special events, guided and self-guided tours, and media presentations are offered all year. Outside, two miles of self-guiding nature trails wind through the short grass prairie, scrub oak woodlands and cottonwood riparian communities. The nature trails are for “foot traffic only” and pets are prohibited. The regional trails are open to hiking, horseback riding, and pets on a leash.
Tuesday – Saturday: 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
