I found the Ogden Nature Center which opened in 1975 as the first nature center in Utah to be very impressive. The 152 acre preserve was interesting not only because of all the opportunities for hiking on the 1.5 miles of walking trails, birding, or...More

The Ogden Nature Center gives you a sense of what the Ogden/Salt Lake City area must have been like before the onslaught of suburbanization. It's a delightful mix of wooded areas, grasslands and wetlands, all in a relatively compact parcel of land. The waking paths...More
