Holidays at the ODC

This holiday season, we are offering exciting activities like weekly scavenger hunts and programs where families can create memories together while in nature. Join us for fun programs such as Knee-High Naturalists, Nature for Tykes, Holiday Winter Walks, and
more throughout the month of December. 

Join us on #GivingTuesday by volunteering to decorate the Visitor Center. Email Ashley VanZee if you’d like to participate.

Programs require online registration. For more information and to register, please go to our calendar or click the link below.


Our Giving Tuesday initiative is to raise money toward the new Dragonflies Discovery Preschool in Park Township. Dragonflies Discovery Preschool provides students with an excitement for learning with play and nature-based learning. Children spend time outdoors each day, learning through active play and exploration. Researchers have identified health benefits and academic benefits resulting from nature-based learning.

On Giving Tuesday we will have a day for people to volunteer by helping us decorate the Visitor’s Center for the holiday season. Email Ashley VanZee if you’d like to participate. Some type of sweet snack will be provided, this is a #GivingTuesday experience for all ages.

Be sure to dress for the weather as all of the decorating takes place outside. If you would like to donate to help further our mission you can do so on our Facebook site, on our website, or stop by on that day to donate in person!
