Ohio nature preserve facility gets a facelift


COLUMBUS — On April 18, the Ohio Historical Society and the Cedar Bog Association will dedicate a new education center.

New facilities

The building will include a modern classroom, restrooms, office space, sales area and exhibit space. The entire design has been planned, not as a destination in itself, but as a compliment to the prime attraction — the various wetland habitats of Cedar Bog and their interesting flora and fauna.

Cedar Bog is one of the highest quality nature preserves in Ohio, with one of the state’s greatest concentrations of rare and endangered species.

Day’s activities

The kick off April 18, the weekend before Earth Day, will begin with a bird walk at 9 a.m. From 11 a.m.-4 p.m., all are welcome to attend a dedication and open house with tours, displays, an art show featuring area nature artists and refreshments.

The event is free.
