What comes to mind when you think of city living? The scene probably doesn’t involve lush greenery alongside fresh bodies of water stirring with wildlife. But that’s exactly what you can experience just steps from some of our stations! Fortunately, state- and federally- protected nature reserves keep many vulnerable habitats a priority amidst all the surrounding urban development. And whether it’s Earth Day (April 22) that’s raising your eco-antenna, or you’re a year-round outdoor enthusiast seeking new adventures, anytime is a good time to explore and appreciate our local natural wonders. Cruise on the Capitol Corridor to get up close and personal with some of the awe-inspiring ecosystems along our route, listed here from south to north.

Hop on and hop off to volunteer at one of the following organizations from Sacramento to San Jose, each in quick walking distance from a Capitol Corridor station.
