April's Events at El Dorado Nature Center

Join Long Beach Parks, Recreation and Marine and El Dorado Nature Center for two new programs celebrating nature!


You’re Invited to the Butterfly Ball! This “Parent and Me” workshop is for you and your children ages 2 to 5. We’ll float and fly amongst the flowers, reminisce about our youthful days as caterpillars, and document our beauty for generations to admire. Come celebrate the wonderful, magical brilliance of butterflies, and be sure to wear your wings! This event will be led by Erika Treller on Wednesday, April 13, from 10 to 11:30am, with a fee of $10 per parent/child. Pre-registration is required, so be sure to call (562) 570-1745 ahead of time!


New Volunteer Opportunity: Sharing Nature in the City will allow you to share your tales on our trails! Come to El Dorado Nature Center for volunteer training in our newest program. In this two-part training you will learn all about the flora and fauna of our area, and get insider’s tips on communicating this information to the public using the Nature Center’s renowned interpretive techniques. Training will take place the Saturdays of April 9 and 16 from 9am to noon. Please feel free to call for more information.
