Palo Alto Nature Center

BEAUTIFUL WEATHER welcomes us outdoors to seek adventure and explore our natural world. We try to teach our kids that those who are observant and patient enough will reap the rewards of discovery. 

Matadero Creek

Matadero Creek

Watch carefully that ripple on the water's surface and you might discover the fish slowly swimming just beneath looking for food or a place to deposit eggs in the muddy creek bottom.

Mountain View Shoreline Park

Pause on your way to scan the meadow grass and you might catch a fleeting glance of jackrabbits scurrying in the brush.  Just follow those long ears!

Palo Alto Foothill Park

Palo Alto Foothill Park

Look closely along the edge of a meadow where dark shadows meet the sunlight, and you might catch sight of a wild turkey foraging for food just beyond the safety of the brushy thicket.

Briones Lake shore

Or if you are alert to the signs in your surroundings, you can join and participate in nature's world of  critters engaged in a game of hide and seek

Arastradero Park

Who knows? Peer long enough into the shadows and you could find someone -- or something -- peering back at you.  The world is full of surprises, so don't miss out on the fun!
