Community Nature Center

The Community Nature Center is open every day, 7AM to sunset, and is located at 1980 Williamson Valley Road in Prescott. The Center has 1.5 miles of trails for hiking, birding and nature study. There is a Habitat Garden with over 25 named species of native plants chosen for their drought resistance and appeal to pollinators. History buffs will appreciate the Hardyville Road exhibit and log cabin. Our small pond is a magnet for birds and other animals as well as water-loving plants. Forty-one plants are identified along the trails and their natural history is described in an on-line guide. Signs of the Month guides have been written for most of the months of the year and are available at the nature center kiosk each month or on-line. Groups numbering ten or more must make reservations with the Recreation Services Department by calling (928) 777-1121.
