The Learning Resource Center (LRC) is a nature center located in Fort Island Park. Inside the LRC there are environmental education displays and a small collection of program animals.

LRC Summer Hours are limited as we slowly open up for public visits and programs.  We will be posting open hours month by month during the summer for 2021.

The LRC will be closed the weekend of:

July 31-Aug 1           CLOSED


August hours reflect times the LRC is open to the public.  We are closed during scheduled programs.  The Naturalists are often called away on city business, wildlife calls, vet visits, and for other reasons.  Therefore, hours are subject to change.
