Nature Center

The Nature Center is Watsonville’s Conservation Headquarters led by the Public Works and Utilities Outreach Team under the Sustainability Division.


For more than 15 years, the Nature Center has focused on informing and empowering Watsonville residents of all ages to conserve natural resources and appreciate our wetlands and the diverse wildlife that inhabits our area. 

The center is a community hub that presents the dynamic relationship of our day-to-day usage of resources in our local environment and beyond. We offer hands-on learning opportunities for all ages,  natural history learning activities, and free resource conservation tools. 


Our vision is to build a more informed, connected, and resilient community.
