GLEN HELEN ASSOCIATION

Explore, learn, belong!

Glen Helen is a Living Sanctuary, forever protected in the memory of Helen Birch Bartlett. 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.

Glen Helen is a member supported, 1000 acre preserve with 25 miles of trails, educational public programs and events, residential environmental education, and raptor rehabilitation sanctuary.

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. 

Visit, explore, learn, belong!
