The Shaker Lakes Challenge encourages you to have fun and expand your knowledge while becoming immersed in nature.

It's easy! Return to the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes throughout the year to participate in interesting nature programs, environmental stewardship opportunities, fun nature hikes and conservation workshops. You can even mix in your own self-directed missions.

Receive a beautiful hand-crafted walking stick and 50th anniversary Nature Center badge. As you make progress, you will earn medallions to add to your stick. The Shaker Lakes Challenge is a fun way to engage the family in environmental learning and to foster a deeper connection to nature.

Participants who complete the challenge will be recognized in our newsletter and entered into a drawing to win one of our celebratory packages (package includes a free Nature Center Membership!).

Suitable for families or individual participation. $25 per participant includes hiking sticks and earned medallions.
