History

 

The Nature Company was a Berkeley, California based chain of retail stores that sold scientific toys, telescopes, artwork, fossils, minerals and gems, and music CDs.  They were founded in 1972 by Priscilla and Tom Wrubel.   They started in Berkeley and expanded all across the USA.  In 1997 they were bought by Discovery and from 1997 to 2001 they slowly converted all their stores and products.  They did a line of beeswax crayons; one of the first to do so.
