Experience ecological design in action at The Ecology Center. We have carefully created our space as a model to educate, inspire, and empower our community to be advocates for a thriving future.

 

Our headquarters and general store, Tools for Change, are located in the historic Congdon Farmhouse in San Juan Capistrano, California. The house is surrounded by an acre of learning landscapes, including our interactive Eco Labs.

The Ecology Center is open daily to the public for self-guided tours, volunteering, visits with our chickens, and shopping in Tools for Change. We also welcome groups for guided tours, field trips, and private events. Take a look at our events calendar to see what kind of skills workshops, community festivals, and other educational events we have upcoming!

As a non-profit, we count on membership, donations, and corporate partnerships to support our initiatives. Become a member, join our volunteer team, or just stop by and visit!
