Spring Break marks the beginning of travel season for many RVers. If you’re ready to tackle your first destination of the year in your RV, but don’t want to plan an ambitious trip right out of the gate, consider easing yourself back into RV travel with a short and easy trip to a little-known southern California wildlife sanctuary. It makes the perfect little trip for a weekend or even as part of your larger Spring Break travel plans.
Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary has been a fun place for families to visit since back in the 1930s. The park is known for showcasing local flora and fauna via accessible walking trails and convenient amenities for visitors.
Located at 29322 Modjeska Canyon Road in Silverado, California, Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary is committed to protecting the native habitats within its borders while promoting education of local wildlife and landscapes through interpretive tours and informative exhibits.
Though it was originally opened as a bird sanctuary in 1939, the sanctuary’s mission has expanded over the past 80-odd years to encompass research, education, and preservation of all southern California ecosystems and the species that call them home.
The public is welcome to explore the nature trails that run through the sanctuary. While out on the trail system, you’re likely to encounter some of the native animal species that call the sanctuary home, including mule deer, great horned owls, and even desert tortoise.
Visiting hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 9am to 4pm daily. Admission is free, but donations are encouraged if you enjoyed your visit and wish to help the sanctuary continue its mission of education and preservation.
