Purchase a Brick Paver in the Nature Playscape Area
Navarino Nature Center will be adding a Nature Playscape area for young children to explore their imagination, sounds, touch, and just have natural fun. The Playscape will continue to be developed into the fall of 2020.

Cross country ski trails are still snow covered and packed with some areas of bare spots. If warming temps continue, the trail conditions could deteriorate.
Reminder the North section of the yellow trail is closed due to logging operations for the rest of the 2021 season.
Those that have been on the trails have reported that the ski trails are fast due to the warming and freezing of the trails. Snowshoers are still out snowshoeing, and we have not received any reports about poor conditions for snowshoeing.
If you are looking to take in the last minute winter activity, act soon to get the best experience before conditions on the trails deteriorate.
No walking on cross country ski trails! Special areas designated for hiking and dog walking here.
Rentals are available during Nature Center hours. All rentals must be returned before the end of business hours. More info here.
Note: We have walkie talkies with a paging system to alert staff to a rental need located outside the doors to lower level and upper level. Press the gold sticker if you need staff assistance.
