Board of Trustees

Kimberly Humphreys Dyer, Chair of the Nature Center Board of Trustees, EOS Implementer at CultureShoc LLC, Cleveland Heights resident, wife and mother to three.
It is an honor and privilege to lead the Board of Trustees at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes. As a long-time Cleveland Heights resident, I understand the vital role that the Nature Center plays in our community not only from a historic perspective, but as it continues to be a cornerstone of our neighborhood and remains so relevant today.  My generation, and generations to come must continue to know and embrace the value in connecting our urban communities to the beauty, health, and both human and environmental wellness that is only possible through a strong a vibrantly preserved and conserved natural resource - and no local entity fills that role more beautifully than the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.
