Tilden Nature Area is a 740-acre preserve located just North of Tilden Regional Park. With over 10 miles of hiking trails, the preserve contains a blend of native and introduced plant communities, including oak/bay woodlands, grasslands, eucalyptus forests, and streams. At Tilden Nature Area one can also find the renowned Environmental Education Center (EEC), headquarters for the area's interpretive programs, and the historic Little Farm.
The Little Farm was built in 1955 and features a variety of farm animals including cows, sheep, goats, rabbits, chickens and pigs. Several heritage breeds are preserved here, including Milking Shorthorn Cattle. Visitors are welcome to bring lettuce or celery (but nothing else) to feed the animals.
The Little Farm is open daily from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm. There is no fee to enter or for parking. The adjacent EEC/Visitor Center is open Tuesday - Sunday, 10 am - 4:30 pm. There is no food concession at the Tilden Nature Area. Bring a picnic!
