Want to discover deep forested ravines, walk through a restored Ohio prairie with grasses over eight feet tall, or explore glacial river valleys carved over 10,000 years ago? Brecksville Nature Center offers all this and more to visitors each year.
Brecksville Nature Center was created in 1939 by Works Progress Administration craftsmen. Excellent examples of chestnut carpentry with curved walnut leaves, wrought iron work and native stones grace the building inside and out. A fascinating wildlife feeding area attracts native mammals and birds year-round. In winter months, eager chickadees will often land in visitors' hands for sunflower seeds.
