Outdoor concerts at the Ogden Nature Center combine gorgeous sunsets and an unrivaled outdoor setting with lively, fresh musicians! Held in the glen behind the Ogden Nature Center’s rustic Visitor Center, these summer evenings will find you lounging on a picnic blanket with toes in the grass, tapping away to great live music. Bring your family and friends, a picnic dinner, drinks, low-rise chairs or a blanket, and enjoy two fabulous summer nights at the Ogden Nature Center.
