The BFEC grounds and trails are open to the public seven days a week during daylight hours. Visitors are welcome to explore at their leisure from our multiple trail-heads or at the Resource Center.
Not all learning takes place with a class or in a classroom. At the BFEC we encourage independent exploration, recreation, and relaxation. Visitors are welcome to:
The BFEC offers regular programs that are usually free and open to the public, on topics such as wildflowers, star gazing, nature art or medicinal plants. Enjoy hayrides at our annual Fall Harvest Festival, admire local nature featured in our Knox County Nature Photography Contest or "meet" wild animals at our all-new Earth Day Festival for 2017.
The BFEC accepts reservations for indoor and outdoor spaces. Community groups and private events are charged a nominal fee depending on the specifics of the request. Kenyon classes, student groups and retreats can request spaces free of charge. To inquire about available spaces or rates, or to make a reservation, please contact Jill Kerkhoff at firstname.lastname@example.org or 740-427-5050.
