Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center Exhibits Opening Sunday

This Sunday the 28th, from 10 a.m. to Noon, an exhibit will be unveiled at the Chino Hills State Park Discovery Center, located at 4500 Carbon Canyon Road in Brea, just east of Carbon Canyon Regional Park.

Although the Center has been open for a few years now, the exhibits have been long delayed.  An article in tomorrow morning's Champion does not specify the content in the displays, but they will, of course, detail the natural and cultural history of the state park and surrounding area.

In addition to a ribbon-cutting ceremony, there will be presentations from a state park environmental scientist, a showing of a state parks video commemorating the system's 150th birthday through the establishment of the Yosemite state park (now a national park), and walks through the newly-revamped nature trail that surrounds the center.

This long-awaited opening is another milestone in the development of the Discovery Center and the continued enhancement of Chino Hills State Park, a jewel of over 14,000 acres of preserved land in a heavily-urbanized environment.
