The Foundation's mission is to inspire lifelong learning and a sustained curiosity and respect for all of nature and the outdoors.
The NWDEF supports the Deerassic Park Education Center (117 acres near Salt Fork State Park on US 22 east of Cambridge, OH). The Deerassic Park Education Center is home to a herd of spectacular whitetail deer and the location for the future Ohio Whitetail Hall of Fame Museum complex. The deer enclosure provides an up-close opportunity for observation of this magnificent animal in its natural habitat.
We offer school and group field trips throughout the year. We will even come to you! Field trip activities can be selected from a list ranging from archery and canoeing to fishing and crafts.
All educational programs are designed to help meet State Academic Content Standards and to encourage youth and families to engage in outdoor activities as a healthy lifestyle choice.
