Adult & Family Programs

The Center is the perfect place for people of all ages to spend quality time learning about the wonders of nature and science.

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center gives children and families a living, breathing connection to the natural world through informal science education. The Center’s unique combination of resources including a live animal collection, public access planetarium, nearby trails and park setting along the shores of Lake Erie allows for high-quality time spent with family and friends.
