The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes is a beautiful, accessible, and welcoming place for humans and an important habitat for animals and native plants. I am fortunate to be able to visit often, and value the serenity and restorative power of the preserve. Yet the main reason I support the Nature Center is the work we do to educate children and adults about the environment and science, providing knowledge that helps all of us understand and appreciate our precious environment so that we can protect it for the future.
