Turtle Bay Exploration Park highlights the natural resources, industries, and people who make far Northern California an incredible place to live, work, and play! Our 300-acre campus includes the famed Sundial Bridge, a forestry and wildlife center with more than 100 rehabilitated animals serving as ambassadors for their species, a nursery focused on drought-tolerant plants, and the McConnell Arboretum & Botanical Gardens with more than 1,000 living cultivates. At the gateway to the Sacramento River, Turtle Bay celebrates all our local region has to offer!
No and always, Turtle Bay is a product of the generosity of our community and we want to pay it forward. Join our You Give, We Give initiative by donating $100 or more on Giving Tuesday and we'll donate a FREE 1-year Family-level Membership to a family in need, identified by our community partners.
To inspire wonder, exploration, and appreciation of our world.
We envision Turtle Bay Exploration Park as a vibrant gathering place where our community is strengthened through education, cultural engagement and economic growth.
