Learn about nature through the Lake Erie Nature and Science Centre. It's here you can really immerse yourselves in the wonders of nature, beautiful wildlife, and yes, even space!
Intrigued? We will get to that soon, but first, let's explore what you can experience within the nature center.
The indoor and outdoor animal exhibits give kids and families an opportunity to learn about the native wildlife in the area, AND see them up close!
You can meet the red foxes, or see the iconic bald eagles! There are great horned owls, and even more magnificent creatures waiting to meet you.
The admission is free, but donations do go towards the care of the animals, so with your visit you can feel like you are part of their rehabilitation!
The Lake Eerie Nature and Science Center are home to the ONLY wildlife rehabilitation facility in Cuyohoga County, with them taking in over 1,400 ill and injured animals each year.
An invaluable lesson in conservation and animal care for the kids they won't ever forget!
And yes, we mentioned space, and space there is! Well, a planetarium to be exact. It's here space and science are made fun for all ages.
They also feature a professional level planetarium with sessions ranging from Twinkle Tots (for toddlers) up to summer space camps. Just check online the sessions for the public shows!
