Buckeye Bud’s Adventure Woods and the Habitat Hut

Spend part of your visit to Holden at Buckeye Bud’s Adventure Woods. Take a spin on the mini zip line, weave on the oversized loom or use your imagination to act out a play in our woodland theater.

Children can also build a log shelter; hop, jump and limbo their way through the obstacle course; or take a quiet break at the bird feeding station. Be sure to explore Buckeye Bud’s Woodland Cabin or create your own artwork at Buckeye Bud’s Observation Tower.

The tower is a great place to see turtles and frogs in Buttonbush Bog.

Buckeye Bud’s Adventure Woods will be open through October and is designed for families with children ages 3 to 10.

Buckeye Buds Adventure Woods is not staffed, adults are responsible to actively supervise children in their care.

Habitat Hut

Our Habitat Hut is geared toward families with children ages 2 – 8. This playhouse, located near the prairie garden, is set among four, easy-to-access habitats: prairie, stream, bog and woods. Families can enjoy Habitat Hut programs on Saturdays and Sundays (late May – October) which are led by education volunteers and staff. Families will get a guided experience of all the habitats and learn why we should care for them. There will be fun, hands-on activities and time to explore as a group.
