The Broughton Nature and Wildlife Education Area is developed and maintained for public use as the primary mission of The Broughton Foundation, a tax-exempt nonprofit organization founded in 1991 by Carl and Elizabeth Broughton.

The Area, or The Park, as we call it, encompasses more than 500 wooded acres available for wildlife and environmental study. It is an educational area with several trails, two ponds, a natural stream, a waterfall, and several areas of undisturbed natural habitat just north of Marietta, Ohio.

Gifts to The Broughton Foundation, which are used exclusively for maintenance and further development of park facilities, can be made through the Marietta Community Foundation.

For more information or to reserve the pavilion, please contact The Broughton Foundation: 619 State Route 821, Marietta, OH 45750 • 740-374-9396 • Email
