Wildlife Sanctuary. This little known gem is located
in the heart of Modjeska Canyon in Orange County

Voted the best birding location in Orange County
by Orange Coast Magazine in 2008, Tucker is best
known for its wide variety of native and migrating
birds, especially hummingbirds. However, its facilities
also include a nature science center, two ponds,
a bird observation porch and feeders, relaxing
patio and picnic areas, a small amphitheater,
walking trails, a gift shop, restrooms and an
ample visitor parking lot.
and operated by California State University Fullerton
and its College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics,
Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary's mission is to support
science and environmental education and to act
as a sanctuary for the preservation of the local
native habitat and wildlife. Admission is free,
though visitor contributions to help us feed the
birds are sincerely appreciated. Naturalist led
education tours for school groups, scouts, senior
or community groups are also available by reservation. Or sign up
to have your next birthday party including a tour,
