Take a peaceful walk in nature in the middle of an urban setting
Tonaquint Nature Center is an oasis of nature in the heart of St. George. The ripple of Santa Clara river, the rustle of cattails and the screech of a red-tailed hawk are experiences to discover at St. George’s best kept secret. Located at 1851 South Dixie Drive, just west of South Gate Golf Course, Tonaquint Nature Center offers outdoor education programs, special events and summer nature camp programs.
Throughout the months of June and July, the Tonaquint Nature Center hosts an interactive nature day camp for ages 4+ to 5th grade. Each day of camp is filled with new adventures, exciting experiments and opportunities to experience nature at its finest.
