Our story is one that is rich with history. A small but mighty Nature Center, we were founded in 1966 to prevent a highway from destroying this treasured green space. Since, we've worked to educate the next generation of 'Freeway Fighters' about the environment and provide a free space for people to deepen their connection to nature.
Mission: The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes conserves a natural area, connects people with nature and inspires environmental stewardship.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: It is our goal to make sure that we provide a safe, welcoming, and inclusive outdoor space so that all people can connect with nature on their own terms and without fear, discrimination or violence.
