Connecting Kids to Nature

At the Nature Center, we celebrate connecting kids to nature and the natural systems that bind us together.  Join us year-round for fun and learning!  Our offerings for kids include Outdoor Adventure Camps and Classes, school field trips, early childhood programs, Spring break camps, new eco-adventure trips, scout programs, and B'Earthday parties.

There are many opportunities to volunteer at the Nature Center, whether it is helping out at one of our events or assisting us by bringing your own unique background and expertise to our day to day operations. We wouldn't be able to provide the many quality services we do without the generosity and talent of our many volunteers. 

Interested in learning more? Fill out our online application or contact Jessica Brand at brand@shakerlakes.org or call (216) 321-5935 x 237 for more information.  We look forward to hearing from you!


The Nature Center is proud to be part of the Ohio Lake Erie Birding Trail.
