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.

Your support will help us reach our goal of raising $50,000 to welcome children into the new learning environment soon. The Center is currently at 92% of our fundraising goal!
