Built in 1988, Heery Woods Nature Center serves as the center for environmental and outdoor recreation programming offered by the Butler County Conservation Board. Designed around the theme “This is your Heritage” center visitors can learn about natural, cultural, and local history through visual and hands-on exhibits. Exhibits on prairies, wetlands, and forests help visitors learn about the natural world around them. You can also learn about cultural and local history through exhibits on Native American Artifacts, River History, and Park History. Outside, park visitors can learn more about the park and the natural world on one of two self-guided interpretive trails and through interpretive signs placed around the park. Programs for schools, youth, and special interest groups are offered by appointment, and general public programs are offered on a regular basis. Public programs are advertised through the local paper. Two programs, the October Halloween Hike, and the January Lighted Night Ski, are annual events.
