Getting in touch with nature at the Ogden Nature Center

The Visitor Center stands in front of Mount Ogden.

The Ogden Nature Center is a 152-acre sanctuary for nature lovers nestled within the heart of Ogden. Open all year round and established in 1975, they provide environmental education, cultural appreciation and recreational exploration. It has remained dedicated to promoting a strong connection with the environment for over 50,000 annual participants.

The Ogden Nature Center consists of a dynamic landscape from an outdoor classroom and a breathing museum with live, curated exhibits. They feature Utah’s native animals and historical affairs, contributing to the rich narrative.

Moreover, its facility is committed to accessibility. All visitors can engage in picnic areas, treehouses and walking trails or observe architectural structures. They also boast two of Utah’s greenest buildings, featuring sustainable practices and a special gift store, the L.S. Peery Education Center and the Visitor Center’s Discovery Room, with popular hand-woven African baskets and Folkmanis animal puppets.

The Ogden Nature Center even extends its reach through volunteering, community outreach programs and event hosting. From wildlife classroom presentations to monthly/summer events, visual and performing arts or venue rentals. They are flexible for gatherings of all manners, inspiring lives to any species that passes through their gates.
