EcoCenter Open Hours

Join Us at the EcoCenter!

The EcoCenter is a public nature center and headquarters for Environmental Volunteers. We are located across from the Duck Pond in the Palo Alto Baylands Nature Preserve. Come by for a visit during Open Hours to explore hands-on activities, touchscreen exhibits, a green building tour, the nature art gallery, guided hikes, and more.

We are open most Fridays, and at least one Saturday of each month, from 10am-1pm. Visit the EcoCenter Events Calendar to view our availability on a specific date.
