DNC's 4+ miles of trails take visitors through 136 acres of farmland, forest, restored prairie and floodplain along the beautiful Shiawassee River - just five minutes from downtown Owosso. Visit us from dawn until dusk year-round for a great place to hike, cross country ski, learn more about Michigan's natural history, or find a quiet place to commune with nature. Visit our Historic Sleigh and Carriage Museum by appointment. Tour the nature center to see all the animals, or rent the facility for your wedding, open house, reunion, and more. Whether you are looking for a place to hike with your dog, have an educational field trip, or spend volunteer hours - we have many great ways to get involved.
