About Wahkeena Nature Preserve 

In 1931 Dr. Frank Warner of Columbus gave his new bride, Carmen Hambleton, an unusual wedding gift 94 acres of old farmland in southern Fairfield County.  Mrs. Carmen Hambleton Warner named the property “Wahkeena”.  Come and experience these incredible natural habitats, an informative nature center, and numerous gathering spaces for people to come together and experience the beauty and wonder of the natural world.
