Constructed in 1953, the Rotary Nature Center, a City of Oakland Office of Parks and Recreation and Youth Development site, continues in a long tradition of education offering outreach programs and summer day camps instructed by our dedicated staff. Established in 1870, the oldest wildlife refuge in the United States allows the public to observe several species of resident and migratory waterfowl at close range.
