The visitor center is normally open on weekends only. Aurelio Albaisa, a docent at Malibu Creek State Park, has volunteered to be at the park when ICO brings kids there for a hike. He will open the visitor center for them on weekdays when it is not usually open and walk with the kids during all or part of the hike to answer questions. Contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
