field trips and group programs

Bring your class to Lake Erie Nature & Science Center for a field trip unlike any other! Our Field Trip Programs cover the Ohio Academic Content Standards in Science with hands-on activities and inquiry-based learning experiences. Expect more activities, less lecture! Come prepared to engage in the wonder of scientific discovery.

Living "Wildlife of Ohio" (red fox, skunk, raccoon, birds of prey, snakes, waterfowl and more!) provide students with up-close encounters in our Life Science field trip programs. Varied habitats in the Huntington Reservation enhance our exploration of the “Habitats of Ohio” and beyond. Water and Sand tables, rock and mineral specimens and identification kits provide exciting hands-on experiences in our "Power of Water" and Geology field trip programs. The Space Science Ohio Content Standards come to life in our world-class Walter R. Schuele Planetarium.
