The Ogden Nature Center

A  few weeks ago we headed up to the Ogden Nature Center for one of their free Summer Saturdays.  Admission is dropped on the Saturdays in the summer, and they have a little craft project for kids.  We did the craft project, then wandered around on the trails. 
 The butterflies outside on the flowers were very pretty, so we took a few pictures of them. 
 There was a small flock of turkeys wandering around, and the kids really liked them a lot. 
 My favorite part of the Ogden Nature Center was the bird rehab/ raptor cages.  It reminded me a lot of the Environmental Learning Center in Fort Collins.  They have 8-10 birds that have been injured and can't fly or be let back into the wild, so they are left in the cages so people can look at them.  It actually sounds pretty sad for the birds. 
 The owl's eyes are pretty awesome.  I really liked the crow, and the eagles and hawks.

We hiked out to the treehouse on the Northwest Corner.  It's dirt paths, but we were able to drag our stroller out there.  It seems like a long walk in the heat of mid- day. The shade at the end was nice and the kids enjoyed running around.
