Sellers Keever Outdoor Educational Activity Center at the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge Nominated for Orchid Award
The Sellers Keever Outdoor Educational Activity Center, located in Imperial Beach, provides an outdoor classroom setting for school children to connect with nature and learn about the wildlife of the San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge.
The Sellers Keever Outdoor Educational Activity Center was funded by a $175,000 grant from Supervisor Greg Cox. The County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation designed the unique multi-hued concrete pad in the shape of a nautilus shell. The design of the landscape architecture features of the pad, bench, sitting boulders, and trail, seamlessly blends in with the surrounding areas that are being restored to native wildlife habitats by schoolchildren and volunteers. The design by the County of San Diego reflects a high degree of sensitivity to the inspiration and memory of the two young boys, and natural areas and wildlife of south San Diego Bay.
