Discovery Center presentation.

Founded in 1977, Ventana Wildlife Society is a non-profit organization committed to conserving native wildlife and their habitats.  It does so by a three pronged approach of leading outdoor education activities for youth, providing valuable ecological services, and managing the central California condor population. Ventana Wildlife Society successfully recovered a breeding population of Bald Eagles in central California and is in the process of doing the same for California Condors. The Discovery Center at Andrew Molera State Park in Big Sur is a center where you can see and interact with the exhibit Bringing the Condors Home and learn about condors and the efforts to recover these birds to the wild. At the Discovery Center, you can sign up for tours and engage with on-site biologists and naturalists. The Discovery Center is open on Saturdays and Sundays from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
