The Discovery Center: Explore, Learn, Restore

When completed, the San Gabriel River Discovery Center, located in Whittier Narrows Regional Park, will provide engaging, accessible environmental education to thousands of Southern Californians each year.

The San Gabriel River Discovery Center will be:

  • a living laboratory for thousands of students, families and visitors who will come each year to explore its interactive exhibits and learn the rich natural and social history of the region;
  • a portal to discover the beauty, diverse habitat, and extensive trail network of the San Gabriel River and Mountains;
  • a catalyst for environmental stewardship, providing visitors with the resources and tools to protect water resources and habitat for future generations; and
  • a model of green design that embodies the values of sustainability and restoration

We invite you to explore this website and learn more about the San Gabriel Valley River Region, the Discovery Center, and how to get involved in this exciting project.
