Glen Helen Ecology Institute

Glen Helen is a 1000 acre private preserve,with more than 20 miles of trails, educational public programs & events, residential environmental education, & raptor rehabilitation. We are supported by the generousity of Glen Helen Association Members, community donations, and publicly accessable grants. 
Mission
Glen Helen is a Living Sanctuary, forever protected in the memory of Helen Birch Bartlett as a National National Landmark. It is a Natural Classroom, where students and the public can learn about the environment and how to live with Earth in mind. It is an Outdoor Laboratory, where ecological and environmental research helps us better understand the world around us. 
Overview
Eighty years have passed since the day that Hugh Taylor Birch, a visionary with a love of nature, donated this wooded glen to Antioch College as a living memorial to his daughter Helen. Over the years, Glen Helen has played a lead role in shaping the ecological literacy of our visitors, our community, and the region. The Glen is home to the first residential outdoor education facility in the Midwest, the first educational forest in Ohio, and Ohio’s original facility for education and rehabilitation of birds of prey. Within the borders of this thousand acre preserve, we shelter nearly two miles of the State and National Scenic Little Miami River, plus one of the few National Natural Landmarks in Ohio. 

Glen Helen offers something for everyone, from the college student conducting research with their class, to families drawn in by the 400 year-old oaks and trillium-carpeted slopes, from the kids whose lives are changed by a week at the Outdoor Education Center, to the weekend visitor eager to walk some of our 25 miles of trails. 


The Glen Helen Nature Shop and Atrium Gallery are open to visitors, Monday through Friday, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm, Saturday and Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm.


Visit our Animal Ambassadors, learn about Glen Helen, and explore ecological exhibits in our Trailside Musem; Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. 


Hike, learn, belong!
