One of today's Groupons is for half off the Ogden Nature Center! You can choose from one of two options: $6 for a family day-pass to the Nature Center or $22 for a year-long membership. The day pass option expires 3/9/2012, but the membership option must be activated by 3/9/2012, and then lasts an entire year after that!
This seems like the perfect time of year for a family excursion like this! The weather is cooler and pretty soon we'll see a variety of color on our mountains. Fun!
Here's a little info about the Ogden Nature Center:
The Ogden Nature Center indulges natural instincts with a 152-acre preserve and education center filled with exhibits and programming for all ages. Families spend a day traversing 1.5 miles of trails, climbing up the observation tower, and strolling by the tadpole pond. The Birdhouse Trail entices a recorded 149 species of birds with more than 100 creative birdhouses and feeders. Hungry explorers can unwrap sandwiches at a picnic grove before stopping by Arrowhead Pond to scan for cormorants or painted turtles wielding brushes in their mouths to daub each other’s shells. Family membership to the Ogden Nature Center grants unlimited access to the preserve plus discounts at the gift shop and programming run by the L.S. Peery Education Center. The sustainably designed Education Center hosts hands-on exhibits and schedules educational programming about wildlife in Utah, art, conservation, and raising the self-esteem of houseplants.
