Restoration Projects Under Way at El Dorado Nature Center
2011-11-28 · By Editor
Several restoration projects are under way at El Dorado Nature Center as part of the second phase of the El Dorado Nature Center Master Plan. The work includes habitat restoration, trail reinforcement at priority locations, and replacement of the pedestrian bridge that links the island to the trails.
Some trail closures will be in effect during the construction period, which is expected to last through December. Posted signs will direct visitors to open trail segments.
El Dorado Nature Center is located at 7550 E. Spring St. The 105-acre environmental, educational, and recreation center serves more than 165,000 visitors each year.
The Department of Parks, Recreation and Marine implemented the first phase of the El Dorado Nature Center Master Plan by restoring the half-mile-long stream and replacing five pedestrian bridges in 2010.
The Nature Center Renewal Phase 2 is being funded by a grant from the California Rivers and Mountains Conservancy under the Safe Drinking Water, Water Quality and Supply, Flood Control, River and Coastal Protection Bond Act of 2006 (Proposition 84).
