Welcome to the Terradise Nature Center

Guided downstream by the magnificent Olentangy River, our property houses a wide range of habitat and scenery. From the ever-present towering hardwoods to the seasonal pooling, Ohio’s diverse wildlife thrives throughout Terradise Lane and Trails. Terradise Nature Center is driven by natural resource education and the preservation of Ohio’s wildlife and heritage.

COVID-19 Update


Join us for our 2020 speaker series “Of the Olentangy.” We will have local experts on the flora and fauna found in the Olentangy Watershed sharing their passion and knowledge of birds, fish, fungus, pollinators and more.
