Opened in 1998, the Big Bear Discovery Center is the largest education center in the Big Bear Valley. While the Discovery Center building is closed for remodeling, general information and free programs are offered every weekend on the outdoor premises. Stop by and be one of the more than 190,000 yearly visitors to experience educational fun and eco-tours.

Annually, special events like outdoor concerts, theater productions, and nighttime interpretive programs are offered in the Amphitheater.

Our goal is to ensure your visit here is enjoyable and heightens your awareness to become a more knowledgeable and responsible caretaker of the San Bernardino National Forest.
