Join us to Build the Education Center in Mitchell Canyon

Mitchell Canyon attracts 35,000 visitors per year. The location is a popular point of access in Mount Diablo State Park for hikes to the summit or the waterfalls, wildflower hikes, tarantula hikes, organized trail running events, mountain biking, equestrian rides, photography, birding, and geology hikes. Yet, the facilities currently on the site severely limit who can visit the park.

Mount Diablo Interpretive Association (MDIA) official Park partner, is leading a campaign to raise $3 million to build a new education center in Mitchell Canyon.

The new education center complex will educate park visitors about the natural and multicultural history of the mountain, communicate safety information, provide access for visitors with disabilities to outdoor exhibits and the visitor center, and create multiple spaces to accommodate K-12 classes and interpretive presentations.  

 

Please join us in inspiring new protectors and champions of Mount Diablo by making a generous tax-deductible contribution today. Your gift will leave a legacy of education, protection, and wonder for the present and future generations!
