What is there to do?

Nature Center at Shaker Lakes is a beautiful day out with the family that gets kids right back to nature! 

That fun feeling of just playing in the woodlands, throwing leaves into the air as they crack in their hands...much more fun than the latest video game! 

The center offer nature experiences for kids, classroom programs and families coming to enjoy walks, runs, and nature watching along the many trails.

If you fancy taking part in their very fun programs, just keep checking what's on! Maybe you will be enjoying a pancake breakfast with the birds on a sunny Saturday?  Maybe even a live birds of prey show!

Maybe you want to enjoy an incredibly sunset on the annual Owl Prowl and listen for the variety of birds that call the area home, such as the Screech Owls! 

Bird watching is a big part of the center, and seasonal bird walks occur the second Sunday of the month from October to March. A fun and relaxing stroll through the center!

And of course, hiking and walking along the trails is such a great way to get out with the family and enjoy nature! The Shaker Parklands have six habitats - stream, marsh, lake, ravine, forest and field.

There are two trails to enjoy. The All People's Trail is a railed and elevated boardwalk, and is 1/3 mile long. Barrier free, it really opens up nature to kids. The Stearns Trail is a mile long and winds through the grounds, including through a marsh observation deck.

So turn that TV off, and get right out into what Ohio has to offer!
