Back Bay Muth Interpretive Center
Thursday August 14, 2008see more by jen
The Peter & Mary Muth Interpretive Center in Newport Beach is a GEM of a find; best part is admission is FREE (but of course a small donation is always appreciated!) My girlfriends and I take our joggers and walk the trail around the Back Bay and stop into the center for some exploration. There are hands-on learning exhibits and an awesome kids’ room with puppets, books, crayons, nature activities and displays of small spiders and snakes. They also offer fun kid programs for kids 2 – 7 for only $5/ class along with family nature walks and other organized events. Check out the website for details and upcoming dates. Note: The building is hard to see and there are not a lot of signs. When you turn onto University Drive, there is a large dirt parking lot. The Nature Center is direcly adjacent to the parking lot (across from the YMCA.) The entrance is on the lower level facing the bay.
