Welcome to The Wilderness Center. We are a non-profit nature center in Northeast Ohio. We have 10 miles of hiking trails through old growth forest and prairies, passing a lake, pond, and look-out tower. Stop in at the Interpretive Building with a wonderful Nature Store, interactive Display Room, and Wildlife Observation Room. We also have an Astronomy Education Building with a Planetarium and Observatory. We are protecting 3,258 acres of forest, streams, prairie and farmlands. The Wilderness Center has been serving the community as the “go to” nature center for education and land conservation since 1964.
