Friends of Hidden Valley Nature Center is a nonprofit, nonpolitical organization with membership open to all who are dedicated to maintaining and protecting Hidden Valley Wildlife Preserve and the educational opportunities it provides for present and future generations. Friends of Hidden Valley Nature Center volunteers help fill the gap between needs and resources. We provide teamwork and financial resources to assist the Nature Center in its day-to-day operations.
Our primary goals are:
1. To advocate for quality educational programs and activities at the Hidden Valley Nature Center
2. To promote preservation of the environment and conservation of natural resources
3. To increase the visibility of the Center and community awareness of its goals
4. To raise funds through membership fees, donations, and fund raisers for the enhancement of the Center’s programs and physical operations
Friends of Hidden Valley Nature Center was founded in 2011. We offer members many opportunities for personal enrichment and public service. We learn from each other, from Parks Department personnel, and from experts in wilderness skills, earth science, astronomy, flora, fauna and wildlife.
Whether you can help by becoming a member or making a contribution, you will be directly helping to preserve one of the most beautiful natural resources in the country.
Effective November 2014, both Friends and the Nature Center itself can receive mail at 11401 Arlington Avenue, Riverside, CA 92505.
