If it’s been awhile since you’ve communed with nature, or maybe just visited the local experts at Placerita Nature Center, the annual Open House is a good time to go. On May 11, 2019 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. the public is invited to see animal presentations, take hikes, pan for “fool’s gold” and participate in hands-on nature crafts. There will also be live music, caricatures, and the gift shop is open.

The annual event is free to attend and many families pack a picnic lunch for the day. The Placerita Nature Center has weekly events as well.
