"Neat place to experience nature"
When you travel up along the city street of Chapman Ave. and follow it up until it converts to Santiago Canyon Rd and follow that still until it hits Modjeska Canyon Road, you are well on your way to The Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary. Owned and operated by Cal State University Fullerton and the schools College of Natural Sciences and mathematics I had the privilege of visiting the center as a volunteer. The sanctuary offers a number of things you can take notice of while you’re there such as a nicely shaded picnic area, a natural history museum, hiking trails, a gift shop and even a small amphitheater. While the preserve occupies 12-acres of land all of the amenities here are on a small scale. Leaving much of the beauty and appeal of the place up to nature, guests can find plenty of parking on the dusty trails of the sanctuary lots. If you ever get the chance to visit or are interested in finding out more you can expect to be very hands on which is a nice touch. I would recommend driving out to the Wildlife Sanctuary if you are interested in giving a helping hand to the natural community. The staff is beyond friendly and do really make you feel like you are part of an important team while you volunteer your time to make the sanctuary a better place for its visitor and its inhabitants.
