The EcoCenter is a nature center and community resource open to the public in the Palo Alto Baylands. The historic Birge Clark-designed “paddlewheel boat” building has come back to life as the home of the Environmental Volunteers, where visitors of all ages can gather to learn about and be inspired by nature. The building was remodeled using innovative, eco-friendly technologies and techniques.
The EcoCenter offers free environmental education through public learning programs, events, a digital touchscreen science exhibit, green building tour, and more. Visit the EcoCenter and experience nature learning up-close and hands-on.

Fun Nature Facts
Did You Know? Large schools of sardines on exhibit tend to swim against the current during the day, but turn around to conserve energy at night when not feeding. If you have any fun facts to share with the EV community, email Communications@EVols.org or post it on our Facebook page.
