Providing a home for permanently injured wild animals which are incorporated into environmental education programs

Ohio Nature Education is a private non-profit volunteer organization which provides a home for over sixty wild animals that can no longer live in the wild. We incorporate these animals into environmental education programs for people of all ages. Our customers include schools, Scout troops, garden clubs, senior centers, metro parks, and community centers. Our programs feature many visuals such as study skins and pelts and interaction with our audience. We utilize different formats and can custom design for groups of virtually any size and age range.



If you've found an injured, sick, or orphaned animal, please refer to the Ohio Wildlife Rehabilitators Association's web site to find a local wildlife rehabilitator that can properly care for the animal. While your intentions to help the animal yourself are good, you may wind up doing more harm than good. Leave the rescue of wildlife to the experts.

Gift wrapping

An annual holiday tradition we have here at Ohio Nature Education is to provide gift-wrapping services at the Half Price Books location on Lane Avenue in Columbus.  You can take this opportunity to not only get your holiday shopping done, but also have your purchases from Half Price Books wrapped and ready to go before you even get to your car!  In turn, we only ask for a donation so we can continue our mission.  You can find us most days from December 10 through the 24th, and we will frequently have some of our education animals on display!  We hope to see you soon!
