The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes is a nonprofit organization in Shaker Heights, Ohio that works to conserve a natural area, educate visitors about nature, and promote better environmental stewardship. It was founded in 1966 as the result of a volunteer effort to preserve the Shaker Parklands from becoming the route for a new freeway connecting Cleveland's East Side to downtown.

The Nature Center offers curriculum-related school programs, including an early childhood program for several East Side school districts and the Cleveland Public Schools. Walkers, runners, and bird-watchers use the trails for exercise and recreation.

The center is home to many wildlife and plant species living in a variety of natural habitats, including marsh, brook, field, forest, and ravine.

  • I came to know the place strolling around the charming Shaker Heights neighborhood. The Center is an example of excellent use of an otherwise useless area. Water sprouts from the soil to form lakes...

  • A beautiful, natural environment that's delightful to visit anytime of year. You never know what animal, bird or water life you will spot. They also have a wonderful plant sale each May where I get my annuals and perennials.
  • Nice wooden walkways that go above the marsh and lead to done fantastic views. The nature center was closed when I visited but it looks really nice.
