Kids Corner

Our Kids Corner program is usually scheduled in February/March and November/December, however due to renovation-related access and safety issues, we cannot safely offer this program in 2017. We look forward to resuming this fun program when we reopen in 2018!

Kids Corner is a fun way to explore nature with your young children at Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center. Each program is designed for toddlers and pre-K children with an accompanying adult. Kids Corner themes change each season, so families can enjoy a new topic each week! Activities may include nature-based crafts, stories, lessons, and games both inside and outside the center — so come dressed for the weather!

The lessons, stories, and activities from each week’s Kids Corner event will remain open the rest of the week as a self-guided activity in the Discovery Room during regular center hours, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Feel free to pack a zero-waste lunch when you visit the center, and after Kids Corner is over, stick around to explore the Discovery Room, enjoy the Raptor Center, and visit the bookstore and gift shop!

When Is Kids Corner and How Much Does It Cost?

Kids Corner is held Wednesday mornings in February, March, November, and December from 10:00 a.m. until noon in the Discovery Room at Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center.  As noted above, we are on hiatus in 2017 due to renovations – we will return as soon as possible! Visit our Calendar of Events for exact dates and more details about each week’s program topics and themes.

The best part is that Kids Corner is FREE and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of Shaver’s Creek members and Growing Tree Toys of State College!

School groups interested in this type of programming should contact us to schedule a separate program by calling 814-863-2000.
