    When humans and wildlife cross paths.

It’s a feeding ground for hungry young minds.

Kids dig it when they can prowl through the woods. Track a porcupine. Touch a reptile. Or go eye-to-eye with a Great Horned Owl.

That’s the Sunriver Nature Center… 

Our hands-on activities, programs and exhibits fit easily into a weekend vacation. Our staff of naturalists will keep your kids curiously engaged and provide an exciting new perspective on the natural world. To us, there’s nothing sweeter than the oooohs and aaaahs of kids seeing something for the first time. So stop in today for teachable moments, precious memories and great photo ops.

Fun for the whole family located in Oregon's most popular destination resort and adjacent to the Oregon Observatory.

The Sunriver Nature Center & Observatory is a non-profit, educational organization. But you don’t have to tell the kids that! We’re funded in part by the Second Tern Thrift Shop, located on Spring River road just a mile west of Sunriver.
