The Ogden Nature Center is a 152-acre (0.62 km2) nature preserve and education center located in Ogden, Utah. Created in 1975, it was Utah's first nature center. The center includes live animal exhibits, walking trails, ponds, bird blinds, observation towers, treehouses, gardens featuring drought resistant plants, and protected areas for wildlife. It offers nature-based classes and activities for children and adults, as well as classes on environmental issues.

In 2003, the center added a 6,000-square-foot (560 m2) education building, constructed on green building principles and insulated with recycled materials.[1]
