Who We Are

Introduction

Nature is for everyone. That is the foundation of all of our work at Cincinnati Nature Center.

Each year, we welcome thousands of nature enthusiasts from around the region and beyond to explore the 1,800 acres of forests, prairies, streams, ponds, and wetlands that make up our two locations—Rowe Woods and Long Branch Farm & Trails. And we connect thousands more to nature through our online learning programs, social media, and e-newsletters. 

Because each person's connection to nature can be deeply personal, we offer programs, volunteer opportunities, clubs, events, and more that provide opportunities for people of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities to engage with nature at their own pace and within their own interests.

For children, we offer lots of opportunities for nature play, exploration, and discover through specific programming, school field trips, camps, and our preschool and K-2 Nature Schools.

But it's not just about what we offer to people. We work to protect and care for our land and its more than 800 species of plants and wildlife. 

Through research, education, and proven conservation tactics, we work to protect land and wildlife within our boundaries while educating visitors, members, and neighbors on what they can do to help in their own yards, neighborhoods, and communities. 

With a passionate team of staff and volunteers, we continue to look for ways to improve visitors’ experiences while keeping our focus on protecting this haven for all of its inhabitants.
