    Hi,
    Has anyone been here? It is a nice big nature center situated in Richland County, OH, near Mansfield. There are tanks of native turtles, fish, frogs, snakes, lizards, a pair of screech owls (when I visited Jan 3, they were twittering!) and an American kestrel. Volunteers run a small gift shop, where you can buy wildlife buttons, bike decals, books, etc. from behind a counter. They offer special programs and the tanks are spacious. It is part of the Richland County Park District. Out of the 40+ nature centers, zoos, aquaria, aviaries, sanctuaries, etc. I have visited, this is in the top ten.
