Hubby and I took our grandkids for a morning of hiking and just looking at all the beauty that surrounded us. Was not disappointed. We only live a few miles from here and this was the first time we had went....we will be going back quite often.

Awesome place to see nature so much to see. Great for adults and kids. Interactive things to do inside, as well as hiking trails, and picnic tables.

Just completed another visit to one of our favorite places in Stark County. Took our boys there for years. Now, they've grown up and we still visit. Great resource for information about the out of doors.

The center / building is lovely but doesn’t have great curb appeal or a great welcoming feeling. Maybe better signage would help with this. When we went inside the entry, there was a woman at the front desk reading a book. She did not look up or greet us until we finally said “Hello”. Then she was helpful in telling us about the center and the hiking. We went upstairs where there are some exhibits on Ohio animals, rocks, trees, etc. There is a bird watching room where the windows look directly out on trees, birdhouses, feeding stations, etc. There is a large room for children to discover, learn and play. There was a live snake, turtle, and bee hive. There is an auditorium and several meeting rooms that can be reserved for use by groups. The center hosts special events, classes, and learning opportunities for children and adults. On the first floor is a wonderful gift shop for adults and children with everything nature oriented. Outside there is a wonderful shelter for picnics or gatherings. There are several areas for hiking. The trails are easy to moderate in degree. They are gravel or grass or packed earth with a few bridges over creeks. (No rocks or roots to trip over) This organization receives no government funding and depends on donations and private funding.

What a joy to discover this gem in the wilderness literally. awesome interactive activities for the children to learn about Local history of plant and fauna. we would definitely need to return to explore the hiking trails, you can borrow a stocked backpack to supply you with things to make the journey more enjoyable. A nice climate controlled lookout to see birds. They also have a very cool active beehive where you can hear the see and hear the bees at work.
