I work at Odin School and would like to plan a fieldtrip to Ballard's Nature. Could you please email me a phone number or email to get in touch with them.

There is a link to the full story, found in the Journal-Gazette out of Mattoon/Charleston. Shabbing really paints a picture with descriptions that make you feel as if you are reading her feature at the nature center itself.

In the news page of this same Watson, IL, you will find the link, and within her feature, you will find a link to Shabbing as well as the paper's phone number. At the end of the feature, you will find the address and phone info for the Ballard Nature Center.

Please comment back some day after you've visited the nature center with your group.
