The Ogden Nature Center is a open area where you can walk around the many trails and see birds and animals of all kinds in their natural element. They do have hands-on classes for children as well as bird shows. You can walk around and see great birds in their majesty who unfortunately cannot be released back into the wild... More

The center itself is pretty small but is home to 1/2 a dozen little critters my favorite is an owl. Outside they have another 1/2 dozen large birds like Eagles and Hawks all the have been hurt and could not be returned to the wild. But the real fun is outside where you can wonder the trails and see all... More

I've been coming to the Ogden Nature Center for MANY years. Seen a lot of changes- for the better! First few trips here were on field trips with my children when in kindergarten.

Great place to take kids to learn about nature. They do some great activities and presentations about animals and plants that the kids love! Most of what goes on happens outside and the kids love that!

We visited the Ogden Nature Center, located at 966 W 12th St, Ogden, UT 84404 this year with our grand kids, they had a bunch of bird houses to check out, and some crafts and dancers going on, as well as a nice walk in the woods. The Grand kids had fun, and so did Grandpa and Grandma!

A very good place to relax and enjoy the area. Also some very good wild life and interest about them. A place to learn more, especially for children of all ages.

The Ogden Nature Center is a great place to spend some time outside right in the city. Their trails wind through woods and around ponds. They also have very nice blinds at each pond, where you can watch birds do their thing without being influenced by your presence. The gift shop is very nice and we always go there for... More

This is a very family friendly educational place. Easy to get to. Very helpful people. We got to pet the Tortoise while they were feeding him. We also saw the baby turtles. Several birds, snakes etc. Don't miss out , and don't forget bug spray. TONS of misquitoes.
