Effie Yeaw Nature Center in Carmichael

In 1955 a teacher, Effie Yeaw started leading natural walks in Carmichael, along the American  River.  She has done so much for the Nature Center , they named Center after her in 1960.   It is called the EffieYeaw Nature Center.
The land was purchased in 1960 along the American River known as the Ancil Hoffman Park.  There was many purchases over the years that includ the Effie Yeaw Nature Area.
This is one of the Indian's huts that are seen in the park.
There was many things of nature to take photos , here are just a few.
