With the addition of our new visitor center and to provide a better experience to our visitors, we have adjusted our hours of operation. Starting September 1, 2015, our visitor center and administrative office will be open 9:00 am to 5:00 pm during week days. Saturday and Sunday hours have not changed: Sat 10 am to 4 pm and Sun 12 to 4 pm.

We look forward to you visiting the ODC Nature Preserve and enjoying our inside displays, trails, and wildlife on the grounds. We will continue to allow dog owners on most of the trails as long as their pet is on a 6 foot leash. Trails leading along the DeWitt Wildlife Enclosure and through the Birds of Prey Education Facility will continue to be closed to pets for the safety of the captive animals.
