Consider a Year End Gift
to the Nature Center!

The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes has become the cherished resource it is today because of individuals who believe in our legacy and our mission. Each year, walkers, runners and birders visit the trails for wellness, solace and the simple enjoyment of nature. Through our quality programs, thousands of children use our trails and habitats as an outdoor classroom to learn about our natural world through activities that cannot be duplicated inside.

As we close another year, we hope you will join us in ensuring future generations find a lifelong connection to nature.
