Come visit the Discovery Center in Big Sur, California located at Andrew Molera State Park. At the Discovery Center, you can see and interact with the exhibit Bringing the Condors Home and learn about condors and the efforts to recover the birds to the wild.

The Discovery Center is a great place for anyone interested in spending time in beautiful Big Sur, going on breathtaking hikes with views of the mountains and ocean. Bring your family or friends and have a picnic, sign up for tours or interact with on-site biologists and naturalists. The Discovery Center is open to the public and free of charge.

Visiting with a group? Ask about scheduling a presentation on the California Condor and our roll in reintroducing this magnificent species to the Central California coast. Presentations are available free of charge during our regular operating hours, and we can accommodate groups of up to 30.

Thanks to our donors:
Discovery Center renovations were made possible by Hind Foundation and Robert and Florence Slinger Fund #2 of the Community Foundation for Monterey County.

Andrew Molera State Park is located 26 miles south of Carmel, CA. The entrance to the Park is on the west side of Highway One. Veer left when you see the signs for Molera Horseback Tours and Ventana Wildlife Society. Go approximately 1/8th of a mile and the Discovery Center is on your left.
