Located in the heart of Ogden, the Ogden Nature Center is a 152-acre nature preserve and education center open to the public for discovery and exploration. Visitors enjoy meeting live birds of prey, wandering through 1.5 miles of easy walking trails and exploring tree houses, bird blinds and a spotting tower. Two green buildings feature environmentally sustainable construction practices and house nature exhibits, classrooms and a unique gift shop.
The Ogden Nature Center offers a wide variety of community programs including art, photography, birding, Utah’s wildlife, outdoor recreation, conservation, sustainable practices and more. During the school year, teacher-naturalists lead outdoor field trips for school children and nature-themed day camps in the summertime. The annual Earth Day Celebration and Creatures of the Night at Halloween are two of many feature events at the Nature Center.
