ENHANCING YOUR OUTDOOR CLASSROOM
CAMPAIGN FOR THE NATURE CENTER AT SHAKER LAKES
The Kelvin and Eleanor Smith Foundation will match all campaign gifts of $100 or more June 5–August 31 — up to $100,000! Gifts $500+ are eligible to receive a Legacy Pathway plaque on the new All People’s Trail.
The goal of this 6.1 million campaign is to bring nature to life for our visitors - to more deeply fulfill our mission, building upon our legacy to ensure we remain a welcoming and accessible asset to the community now and into the future.
Now is the time for you to join us as we invest in our beautiful nature preserve - for today and for the future. Will you help us create more access, more educational opportunities and preserve the legacy at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes?
The Legacy Pathway is a unique chance to leave your mark on the historic All People's Trail transformation. Your gift will play an integral role in Enhancing Your Outdoor Classroom including the iconic elevated boardwalk that is the centerpiece of our environmental education programs.
Over the past few years, we have been working hard to reinvigorate and enhance YOUR PARK to ensure this precious place is here for you and future generations. Remarkably, the Nature Center receives no local tax dollars to maintain these 20 acres within the Shaker Parklands. Your support plays a vital role in the success of our campaign, and in safeguarding the next 50 years of learning at the Nature Center.
