Native Habitats

Acorn and oak leaves

The Native Habitat area depicts four dwindling local plant communities of
inland western Riverside and San Bernardino Counties: riparian, coastal-sagescrub, chaparral, and oak woodland. Learn about the plants and animals of inland southern California. The riparian plant community includes a recycling stream for the study of native fish, including the threatened Santa Ana Sucker.
Visitors learn about specific actions that they can take to reduce their impacts on habitat and wildlife, such as by eliminating invasive plant species from landscaping and by preventing storm water pollution.
