The ODC Network is a non-profit outdoor education organization. Through its programs, demonstration areas and interpretive exhibits, the ODC Network provides students and community members with up-close views of nature and learning opportunities about the West Michigan environment.

Since 2000, the organization has served more than 120,000 children and adults through outdoor education and recreation programs. More than 70,000 people annually visit ODC sites to walk the trails and view the wildlife.

Thanks to the 2009 merger of the Outdoor Discovery Center and Macatawa Greenway Partnership the organization now protects over 1,200 acres along the Macatawa River in Ottawa County and a 130 acre nature preserve in Fillmore Township.

  • What an amazing natural area! The landscape is beautiful and the educational signage is top notch. Highly enjoyable for all ages! I came after hours so I cannot comment on the facilities or events, but I look forward to checking those things out!
  • Such a nice place to visit for a walk on the trails and to see the animals. Plenty of play things for kids to climb on. Great for a free home school field trip
  • The nature center is a big hit with kids. There are animal displays, pelts to touch, a few live animals (turtles, snake, fish), puppets, books, puzzles, etc. Outside, the kids love the zip lines, slide, climbing options, and tiny sled hill. There are bathrooms inside and out. One of our favorite places to take our grandkids!
  • Absolutely wonderful place to be in nature! Easy trails to hike, natural play area and the birds of prey exhibit are great for the whole family!
  • I did a morning walk through it was fabulous seeing a couple workers but it was good to just walk around and not a lot of people but fabulous place they take very good character animals animals it's good to see some help injured animals in animals
