Local Resource Guides

The Science Circus Whittier Team has developed Local Resource Guides for several of these locations. Local Resource Guides introduce science concepts and promote spending time in nature, family participation and learning for little to no charge.

Remember to enjoy these locations responsibly. Check first to see hours of operation. For outdoor spaces, remember to follow all local, state, and federal guidelines regarding wildlife, parks, and nature centers.
