 The Ohio Bird Sanctuary is a haven for native birds, nature preserve, and living museum. Our team is dedicated to caring for and rehabilitating Ohio native birds, protecting natural habitat, and creating opportunities for people to engage with nature. Our mission is achieved through educating the public by providing family-friendly programming and school-based programs, managing a 90 acre preserve, and actively aiding sick and injured birds back to health. The Sanctuary is a non-profit organization that is recognized by the IRS as 501(c)3. All contributions to the Sanctuary to support our mission are tax deductible.

Visit the Birds and Walk the Trails

Hike the footpaths and boardwalks lacing the woods and marshes along the headwaters of the Clear Fork River. The majority of the Sanctuary's displays are accessible to wheelchairs and strollers for everyone to enjoy. Make sure to get your small cup of mealworms and hand feed the aviary residents along the way!




Experience Our Programs

We offer educational programs year-round both here at the Sanctuary and at schools, senior centers, special events, and other venues throughout the state. With guided field trips, day camps, raptor shows, and a Junior Naturalist program, there is something to be enjoyed by everyone! Click here to learn more about our program opportunities.


Find Help for an Injured Bird

We provide care to orphaned and injured native  birds of prey and songbirds that are  brought to us by wildlife agencies and everyday citizens. Our staff provides professional care to nurse the birds back to health for return into the wild. Birds that are unable to be returned to the wild often reside at the Sanctuary and become avian ambassadors. 


The Sanctuary does not accept mammals, non-native birds, or waterfowl. If you need assistance with a mammal or waterfowl. Click this link for more information.
