The mission of Stokes Nature Center is to provide opportunities for students of all ages to explore, learn about and develop appreciation and stewardship for our natural world.

Our History:

Located one mile up beautiful Logan Canyon on the Logan River, the 3,000 square-foot lodge sits on U.S. Forest Service lands and operates under a lease agreement with the U.S. Forest Service.

It was constructed in 1924 by members of the American Legion and later donated to the Trapper Trails Council of the Boy Scouts. Logan's First Presbyterian Church took title to the building in 1996 and in a partnership with the Bridgerland Audubon Society designated a board to establish a separate organization to develop a not-for-profit nature center. A crew of volunteers worked for more than a year renovating the building to provide a safe and welcoming place for learning.

On November 1, 1997 the Allen and Alice Stokes Nature Center was dedicated, honoring the late Allen Stokes and his wife, Alice. Allen and Alice have been and continue to be, a major influence on the quality of life in Cache Valley and northern Utah. Their contributions as loving, caring individuals and philanthropists have been many, but perhaps their greatest legacy is their contribution towards our community's understanding of and appreciation for our natural world. In July of 2001, after almost four successful years of programming, the title to the building was turned over to Stokes Nature Center.
