El Dorado Nature Center Photography Policy
Due to the sensitive habitat at El Dorado Nature Center, and to protect the integrity of the trail system, only informal "vacation style" photography and videography is allowed.
Any photography or videography that is staged or posed or uses props, lights, reflectors, or costumes is prohibited. Visitors photographing off-trail, in trees, lakes or stream, or blocking the trail from general patron use, will be asked to stop and possibly leave the Center.
Thank you for protecting this valuable resource and wildlife sanctuary.
