Proposed Visitor Center Project


Cache Creek Conservancy and Yolo County propose to construct a new Visitor Center at the Cache Creek Nature Preserve!


The Conservancy is working with architects to develop draft designs for a Visitor Center. Design elements under consideration are exhibit space, expansion of event space, a rooftop observation deck for panoramic views of the Nature Preserve, and better utilization of the working barn. Within the Visitor Center, the Conservancy envisions interactive displays and specific areas to feature local Native American heritage.

Project Progress

1-22-2020 Public Input Adjustments

Design plans for the proposed Visitor Center have been adjusted based on public comments from the January 8th meeting as well as those submitted via email. The concept for a roof-top viewing area has been removed.  Additional environmental and fire safety elements have been introduced along with accessible, gender-neutral restrooms and  updated capacity septic system.
