Nature Centers Closed Statewide

In response to the developing public health situation with COVID-19 and the Ohio Department of Health’s guidance on avoiding large gatherings, we have suspended all naturalist programs and closed nature centers at our parks statewide for the time being. In addition, the visitor’s centers at Hocking Hills State Park and Old Woman Creek will be closed starting 3/14/20 until further notice.

Outdoor facilities at our State Parks, Nature Preserves, Wildlife Areas and Forests remain open! Enjoy the great outdoors here in the Buckeye State.
