Wahkeena Nature Preserve - Ohio Historical Society


category : Historical Societies
Wahkeena, named with an Indian word meaning most beautiful, is located on the edge of the Hocking Hills. This 150-acre outdoor education area is used for nature study and as a nature preserve. The site was bequeathed to Ohio Historical Society by Carmen Warner, who used it as a summer home.



Wahkeena's sandstone cliffs, part of the famous Black Hand sandstone, are forested with tulip and oak trees. Rhododendron and mountain laurel are common, along with many ferns and orchids. Bird feeders attract many of the 69 species seen here. The rustic lodge now contains an interpretive center. Three trails are available for visitors to view the site.
