Carolyn Parr Nature Center
What They Do:
Share a love of the “wild things” of Napa with the community. Offer free admission and scheduled tours for groups. Plants and animals on display were once alive. Exhibits depict their local habitats, and docents give details on ecosystems. They also guide examinations of skins and skulls and tours of their native gardens.
The Carolyn Parr Nature Center’s collection of nature books and magazines await curious children and adults. Large nature-themed floor puzzles intrigue. Seasonal displays and activities enhance current programs. Hand puppets are used to act out different animal behaviors.
Outside is a small pond habitat, shaded by native bay and big leaf maples. A new wildflower rain garden is being planned for opening next spring, along with several large animal sculptures, and a memorial bench dedicated to several founding members.
Crazy Flower Wines will give one case of wine to the first five people who donate $250 or more through the Give!Guide. Each donor will receive a milkweed plant, on which endangered Monarch butterflies lay eggs, and while feeding on nectar, pollinate many types of wildflowers.
No donors yet. Be the first!
