We had the center come and do a program at a business function for about 60 people. It was great. Everyone enjoyed the show. We had several birds presented and all learned from the folks showing. We even had a bald eagle and what a beautiful bird. The Nature Center is a valuable resource and we would recommend them to... More

The Ogden Nature Center is a fun and educational experience. The location of the Center is ideal for viewing nature with the opportunity to get a close up view of live birds and other animals. The walking trails give the kids a chance to run off their endless energy.

Had a great time here viewing the 60+ bird houses that were entered in the annual contest. The hostess was friendly and informative. GPS put me a block away but I was able to find the entrance. Great wild bird and bee exhibits. I'll be back next year.

We have lived here for years and just barely went and checked this place out. We were shocked to find that it was not only larger than expected, but much more enjoyable as well. Our kids enjoyed the walking around, and loved seeing the eagles, falcons, etc. They also loved seeing the bee hive. We will definitely return soon, as... More

We visited in late June, and while we didn't see any animals (except the usual birds and one turkey), we had a great time. The birdhouse contest entries on the path to the visitors center were amazing and fun, and the natural grasses and plants were lovely. The visitor center/gift shop building was a pleasant surprise, with a small play... More

The Ogden Nature Center is a 152-acre nature preserve & education center. We visited last Saturday, specifically to see their owls. (Sometimes the resident animals are off-site for presentations, so I suggest calling ahead if there's a particular one that you'd like to see.) When I called, they couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. In addition to a Barn... More

This is a really good place for family activities. Lots of outside birds to see outside, good inside activities. Really good place to learn about animals and birds.

We went to a summer concert at the Nature Center. It was intimate and lively. Great place to see and experience music.

A good start, but they could do a lot to improve this. Lots of birds and snakes. Disappointing to see signs that indicate they have certain wildlife, but they're not visible/present. We wouldn't return here unless we hear that they've made improvements.
