Ogden Nature Center

Ogden Nature Center

Each year the Ogden Nature Center brings more than 50,000 children, teachers, and adults together with nature through hands-on field classes.

Welcome to the Ogden Nature Center, the 152-acre nature and education center that was first created in 1975. This nature center was actually the first one in the state of Utah!

During your visit, your group can take advantage of the walking trails, ponds, and an education center, with ample natural science learning opportunities around every corner. Spend some time birding while here, with over 149 species of birds found onsite. Visit the various exhibits within the education center, providing up close and personal experiences with birds of prey, snakes, salamanders, tortoises, and spiders. There are also various art exhibits within the L.S Peery Education Center and Visitor Center's Discovery Room.

Outdoors you will want to explore the 1.5 miles of trails, with several sights to see along the way such as the Treehouse, Blackbird Pond, Avocent Pond Observation Tower, Mouse Hole, Birdhouse Trail, Bear Den, and Amphitheater. Be sure to save plenty of time to see the Nest Gift Shop before you go, and also check to see if any events are happening during your visit, with regular community events such as summer concerts, earth day celebrations, and Creatures of the Night Halloween series.
