Why a community center? Our mission statement: 

 To foster community well-being by providing services and  inclusive community participation in arts, education, recreation, wellness activities and celebration to  those in these local Sierra foothills

Where is the site?

The site is the former Sierra School, at 50151 Whitaker Forest Road, Badger CA 93603. This Sierra School in Badger was once the heart of the community. The school has been closed for years, but we are now reopening the facility as a community center, serving the local communities of Badger, Miramonte and Pinehurst.

Come and view the newly cleaned and refreshed site. Join us for light refreshments and to check out what we have to offer.

  • Town Hall meetings with County Supervisors

  • Connections to county health services

  • Internet cafe and perhaps community meals

  • Exercise classes such as yoga and Zumba 

  • Local history project

  • Arts & crafts classes in drawing, fabric arts, etc.
