Former retail space available for renovation

Lake Erie Nature & Science Center’s programs build on children’s inherent curiosity and foster lifelong connections with the natural world. This exciting project will transform a former retail space into a beautiful learning environment for more children to meet animals, play games, make new friends, and discover the wonders of nature.

Thank you to our generous community for helping the Center reach its $50,000 goal. Please consider making a donation to help prepare it for our programs and welcome children into the new learning environment soon.
