Rain Bird BioTrek

The Rain Bird BioTrek Project is an educational experience for visitors of all ages that emphasizes the need to share knowledge, values, and behaviors that support sustainability on a finite Earth. In its greenhouse, gardens, and stations, it provides interactive educational connections to the tropical rainforest, California's indigeneous plants and people, and other ancient and present day habitats.

Over 200 rainforest species, nestled in our greenhouse, provide a glimpse at the oldest, richest, and most complex ecosystems on Earth. When you smell the aromatic leaves, feel the humidity-softened air, and experience a collective breath of life, then you have truly understood the rainforest! Go to the Rainforest Learning Center.
