at Nature Collective

Everyone is invited to join us for fun-and-informative events!

Anytime you’re looking for free things to do in San Diego, see what’s happening at Nature Collective. We offer free nature tours and family days. For other events, like a film screening, there’s an admission price that lets us offer these experiences.

Our activities are for anyone in town – from locals to visitors – and all ages.
