    Wedding Celebration

    The Bonner Barn was a perfect venue for our son’s wedding celebration. We had 90 guests but had seating for 100. It comfortably accommodated 12 tables, a bar, appetizer station, cookie table and a gathering space for a receiving line. The food and food service were very good and our guests loved the cheeses and appetizers as well as the full course meal. The staff onsite was very attentive, professional and gave great suggestions to accommodate all situations before and during the event including use of technical equipment for a slide show. I would highly recommend a casual or formal event at this delightful venue. It is a hidden gem in our community!

    Red Tail Run 5k

    Request Information
    • When:
      Sep 29, 2019 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM
    • Location:
      6131 Cook Road, Powell, Columbus

    Join Ohio Wildlife Center’s annual Red Tail Run 5K and Walk for Wildlife on September 29th at 9am for a scenic, fall-colored run or walk in the rolling Shawnee Hills of Northwest Columbus. Once finished, racers can witness the release of a recovered wildlife hospital patient back to the wild and visit with resident hawks, owls, coyotes, foxes and other education ambassadors at our Powell center. This event and the course are family-friendly!

    This annual race supports the nearly 5,000 animals from 145 different species admitted to Ohio Wildlife Center’s free hospital each year! The goal is simple – treat these animals and get them back to the wild. All net proceeds are directed back to Ohio Wildlife Centers non-profit mission of fostering awareness and appreciation of Ohio’s native wildlife through rehabilitation, education and wildlife health studies. The Center does not receive any state, county or local operational funding.

    Show your support for Ohio native wildlife by registering for Red Tail Run 5K and Walk for Wildlife. Let’s help keep Ohio Wildlife Center’s mission moving forward with some moving of your own!

    We hope to see you at the race! Red Tail Run takes place, in part, through the generosity of our sponsors. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, email events @ohiowildlifecenter.org for details.
