San Dimas Nature Center is unique in that it has an enclosed wildlife sanctuary containing live animals indigenous to Southern California. Sanctuary is offered at the center for birds and animals that can no longer live in their natural habitat due to circumstances of permanent injury, imprintation, etc.
The animals are brought to the Nature Center from such sources as; California Department of Fish and Game, Wildlife Way Station, Humane Societies, the general public, and other agencies. Whenever possible, they are treated, rehabilitated, and returned to the wild.
Our Brick-by-Brick program helps to raise money to improve the animal enclosures. The feed and care of the animals at the Nature Center is supported purely through your generous donations. We greatly appreciate and thank you for your support. See donations for more information.
