The Ameal Moore Nature Center at Sycamore Canyon Wilderness Park (presented by the Riverside Metropolitan Museum and its partners) is officially open to the public! Family members of the late three-time Council member, Mr. Ameal Moore, were in attendance as were City of Riverside civil servants, and members of the Riverside community. After official opening ceremonies, visitors were encouraged to view the newly built and furbished center.
Inside the center visitors could handle objects on display for hands-on learning, view demonstrations of the City of Riverside’s free ‘Riverside Nature Spotter’ app (available in Apple iOS AppStore & Google store for Android), and meet the staff of the center. Directly outside the center door visitors were encouraged to plant their own wildflower seeds and take them home. More free educational and family friendly programs will be available through the center during regular opening hours which are currently set for summer on Saturdays and Sundays from 9am to 5pm.
