About the Nature Preserve

Jan T. Lowrey Nature Preserve

Jan T. Lowrey Cache Creek Nature Preserve is a 130-acre complex of wetlands, oak woodlands, grasslands, and creek side lands. This serves as the site for our environmental education program in which approximately 2,500 elementary students per year participate in learning about the environment. This site also contains the Jan T. Lowrey Memorial Grove, which showcases California native plants and contains a small amphitheater; and the Tending and Gathering Garden, a collaborative effort with the Native American community to demonstrate native plants used in Native American cultural practices.
