Marietta is located in the heart of Washington County in southeast Ohio. Ancient tribes and pioneers found it ideally positioned between the rivers and the hills - fertile land bearing a wealth of natural resources. Early in US history, the city was designated as the starting place for further exploration - and from this spot westward expansion began. As a result, this star on the map is still on the road to almost anywhere.
Nestled in the picturesque hills of the Mid-Ohio Valley, the historic riverboat town and environs are idyllic places for holidays, vacations, romantic getaways, family gatherings and conventions.
The Broughton Nature and Wildlife Education Area is a part of the Broughton Foundation, a tax-exempt non-profit organized in 1991 by Carl and Elizabeth Broughton.

It is an educational area with several trails, two ponds, a natural stream, waterfall and several areas of undisturbed nature located about one mile from Marietta.
