Teen Programs

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center offers teens the chance to explore career opportunities working with wildlife and public education.

Keeper for a Day

Keeper for a Day gives those wild about wildlife the chance to see (and touch!) all that’s involved in caring for our resident animals and rehabilitation patients. Participants will go behind the scenes alongside our Wildlife Specialists as they care for, assess and treat the animals. Learn about animal husbandry, diet, wildlife medicine and more.

Project Wildlife

This distinctive program offers opportunities for high school students to gain hands-on experience with animals and learn about wildlife education. Members of Project Wildlife will learn from our expert wildlife staff while meeting peers with similar interested and gaining valuable experience through service learning hours in areas such as animal care, wildlife handling, and wildlife rehabilitation.


Teen Programs at the Center continue to be paused due to high transmission of the Delta variant. Thank you for your understanding.
