Nestled in the Rocky River Valley, Rocky River Nature
Center offers spectacular views of a 360 million year old shale cliff from the
deck overhanging the river. Go backwards through time inside the Nature Center
as you explore exhibits about the early inhabitants of the valley including the
giant fish of the Devonian sea, Dunkleosteus.
Children of all ages enjoy Hideaway Hollow, a giant oak tree with lots of
things to discover. View wildlife from the comfort of an Amish made rocker at
our bird feeding station.
Explore the gardens outside on your way to over five miles of trails that
lead from the Nature Center. The trails will take you to the rivers edge, a
wetland forest, ponds, hilltops and an ancient American Indian earthworks. The
nature sightings change along the trail in each season.
