Doing our bit

The goal of Shipley Nature Center is to educate the public about keeping nature in an urban setting. Demonstration gardens show which plants attract butterflies and hummingbirds. The Waterwise garden has a diplay of California Natives which are drought tolerant and attractive for home gardens. .

    As a volunteer at Shipley Nature Center since 2004, I recommend Shipley Nature Center as a great experience for everyone, young and older alike, to experience this 18-acre natural refuge located near the northwest corner of Central Park in Huntington Beach, California. Come to see lizards, rabbits, squirrels, scores of birds, and native Southern California plants.

    Over 4,000 feet of trails that travel through different habitats, including Torrey pines, meadows, willow trees, a freshwater wetland, oak woodlands, and sycamore trees. Well worth the trip.
