Stokes Nature Center is an ideal base for a memorable experience.

Located near the mouth of Logan Canyon, our Nature Center boasts rustic charm brimming with activity. We offer regular programs, a host of workshops, and fun community events. Visit our Little Critters, feed the hummingbirds, bring a lunch and enjoy our Riverside Picnic Area, or go on a gentle hike along the River Trail.
