“Brukner Nature Center is a non-profit, privately funded organization promoting the appreciation and understanding of wildlife conservation through preservation, education, and rehabilitation."

Welcome visitors,

We now have a convenient drop-box for admission, if you arrive before or after our normal hours to hike our trails (see pricing to the left).

Please note, our Interpretive Building will be closed from December 24 through January 1, 2023 for the holidays.  Our trails will be open from sunrise to sunset so come on out for a hike with family and friends.

Also, no pets are allowed – they scare our wildlife!

Remember, there is no picking or collecting and it is important to remain on the trails!  Thank you!

Wishes for Wildlife

 Give a Gift to the Wildlife this Holiday Season

Coyotes, opossums and owls, oh my!  We are home to over 50 wildlife ambassadors, native Ohio wildlife who are no longer able to survive in the wild.  Every day we clean, feed and give them enrichment to keep them healthy and happy!   Please consider donating a gift to our wildlife ambassadors this year.  Our "Wishes for Wildlife" wishlist can be found on page 4 of our newsletter:
