Enjoy Nature at Effie Yeaw

| March 25, 2010 | 8 Comments

Celebrate Spring by enjoying some time out in nature this weekend at Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael.  Every month they have fun and educational activities for the whole family.  It is also a very inexpensive activity since there is just a $5.00 entrance fee per car.

If you have never been there before, take a look at a few pictures of our first experience a couple years ago at one of Sacramento’s best outdoor spots!

After learning about butterflies and making a butterfly craft, we went on a guided hike

After learning about butterflies and making a butterfly craft, we went on a guided hike along a dirt path.

Afterwards, we went inside the nature center where were surprised to find many fun exhibits.

We cooled down and learned about more animals inside the nature center.

The exhibits are interactive and very kid-friendly.

We were surprised at how many fun, interactive exhibits there are!
