El Dorado Nature Center: El Dorado Nature Trail Professional Review and Guide

"Southern Californians have long lamented the destruction of the natural world caused by freeway construction. But in one community, freeway building resulted in the formation of a unique nature center. Back in the mid-1960s, during construction of the San Gabriel River/San Diego Freeway interchange, earth movers moved millions of cubic yards of earth. Thanks to conservationists, some of that earth was moved to form 800-acre El Dorado Regional Park and 80-acre El Dorado Nature Center. The park has wide lawns, ball fields and picnic areas. The Nature Center is a surprise—an oasis in the midst of the metropolis. Surely this land has undergone a strange evolution: from San Gabriel River floodplain to bean fields to freeway interchange to nature preserve. Only in Southern California!"
