Directions to Stratford Ecological Center

Stratford is located just south of the city of Delaware, Ohio – a short distance west of the junction of State Route 23 and State Route 315.

From State Route 315, turn west onto Bunty Station Road and follow for 1 mile (Gabby’s Place, a small carry-out, is at the corner of 315 and Bunty Station Road). At the stop sign, turn north onto Liberty Road. Stratford is a quarter of a mile on the right – watch for our sign! Follow the gravel drive through the woods to the parking lot next to the Education Center.
