about The Ecology Center

Imagine a world where we could give more than we take. The Ecology Center, a nonprofit-organization located in San Juan Capistrano in the historic Congdon Farmhouse, strives to make this a reality. They believe individuals have the ability to directly impact the world we live in, all beginning with sustainability. By creating solutions for an abundant life on planet Earth, The Ecology Center inspires people with their skills, tools and knowledge to ensure a promising future for all.

The Ecology Center‘s four core initiatives highlight perspectives for a bountiful future: Grow, Water, Eat and Make. Through these four pillars, The Ecology Center promotes living a fulfilling life while curating the grounds for those to come and helping to make a sustainable lifestyle a reality.

Road Trip

Road Trip is The Ecology Center’s mobile ecological experience. With interactive displays, an inspiring prep kitchen, and hands on DIY stations, there is no boundary for this trip! The New Children’s Museum is excited to bring the 32-foot double decker bus to San Diego and inspire kids about the power of sustainability.

This past spring, The Ecology Center’s Road Trip traveled across Southern California, hitting 9 cities and impacting over 4,000 students and over 10 schools.

This mesmerizing bus is equipped with state of the art features and interactive experiences. Children and adults will be taken on an ecological journey throughout their time on Road Trip.
