Beach Treasures Include Nature - Huntington Beach Spring Festival in Shipley Nature Center



Shipley Nature Center Annual Spring Festival in April/May each year runs on a Saturday morning from 9am to 2pm


The Annual Spring Festival and Native Plant Sale at Shipley Nature Center is hosting its 4th annual event in Huntington Beach.  The public is invited to join the fun by attending a Nature Friendly Information Fair with a wide variety of community groups and businesses sharing useful and informative materials.


Adults at the event can learn how Natives plants can bring life to your garden, and support the Center through purchase of the plants sold all day.    Learn: how getting rid of your lawn and replacing it with California Native plants will attract good insects and feed the birds and butterflies to make your garden a wonder of nature; how live animals from Inside the Outdoors look up close and personal; and how kids can participate in the Maypole Dance and parade at 11:00 am. Live Entertainment will be provided by Students from the Huntington Beach Academy for the Performing Arts presenting a selection of acoustic music and food will be sold throughout the day.


Tours – Shipley Docents will be stationed along trails to explain about the flora and fauna that make up Shipley’s 18-acres.  Visitors can wander the trails to discover the pond, the Redwood Grove and other habitats.


Monarch Waystation features Monarch caterpillars and butterflies at home in their own Shipley Habitat, while the Wildflower Meadow blooms offer photo opportunities.
