What You'll Get
Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon to Ogden Nature Center, located on West 12th Street. Choose between the following options:
- For $22, you getfor a one-year family membership ($45 value).
- For $6, you get for a family day pass (two adults and two children) ($12 value).
Founded at Utah's first nature center 36 years ago, the Ogden Nature Center unites unites members of modern civilizationurban-confined nature-lovers with the awe-inspiring creatures, and creepers of nature, fostering appreciation for local landscapes and wildlife while nurturing stewardship for the environment. Potential packs of pioneers may use their family day pass ($12) to tap their inner Lewis and Clarks by traversing the 1.5 miles of walking trails that dot the 152- acre preserve, passing through pleasant picnic areas, the 100-birdhouse- strong Birdhouse Trail, and the tree house at Dumke Picnic Grove, where visitors may boot up high- powered binoculars and spy stronger views of birds in flight and animals mid-meditation. Spot one of the 149 species of birds that have mingled in the nature center, from the majestic bald eagle and the graceful black-chinned hummingbird to the suave afro-topped disco dodo. The center also plays host to a number of indoor facilities, such as the E. Hugh and Beth Peck Ford Mews -- rehabilitation center—a building in which day-trippers can meet injured eagles, hawks, and owls up- close --— and two of Utah's greenest buildings (the education and visitor centers), constructed out of eco-friendly materials such as recycled ignorance and whose staffs facilitate instruction on sustainable structures.
With the Membership deal, you’ll ($45) receive myriad additional benefits, including year-round free admission year round, a monthly newsletter, and discounts on both creative engrossing gift- shop items and interest-piquing programs whose including topics include art, photography, conservation, and fitness a la Jack London.
- This place is fun on a summer evening, to go with kids and walk around. The birdhouse walkway was amazing, and with a tour guide you can learn alot [sic] about the few creatures and animals they have there and also about the plants and history of the center. – chrismiss, lilaguide
- The kids love the atmosphere and the hands-on feel of the place. – VNESS, lilaguide
