Aurora Sanctuary State Nature Preserve

The site provides a diversity of habitat types for breeding and migrant birds. A variety of hawks and owls have been observed here, such as great-horned and barred owls, as well as other raptors, such as osprey, bald eagles, red-shouldered, Cooper's and sharp-shinned hawks.

The preserve features several miles of hiking trails providing access to a wide variety of habitat types-- mature and second growth hardwood forest, three ponds, river floodplains and fields. Seasonally, there is an abundant diversity of native wildflowers as well as excellent birding opportunities. The Preserve acquired in 1941 by the Greater Cleveland Audubon Society's predecessor, The Cleveland Bird Club, is the oldest bird sanctuary in Ohio.
