Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve
Did you know the Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve is open for public use? Anyone can walk in to the reserve at any time, just sign in at a main gate and follow the rules posted on the sign. The BCCER is a perfect place for a picnic, family outing or an afternoon stroll. Access the reserve through Highway 32 or Bidwell park, and make sure you're not going on a designated hunting day by checking out the BCCER website here.
The BCCER is a resource managed by the California State University, Chico Research Foundation through The Institute for Sustainable Development and the College of Natural Sciences.
