    Visitor Center Open, Raptors Coming Soon

    Our Visitor Center, new classroom building, and the familiar trails are all open for the public! We’re open 10 a.m.–5 p.m., seven days a week, through mid-December.
    Our newly-renovated Raptor Center will reopen later this fall, so you may not be able to see the raptors when you visit.

    #CreekChange and Crowdfunding!

    Follow our renovation progress on social media with #CreekChange. You can help shape the future of Shaver's Creek as we tell the story of our surrounding forest. Please consider going to and giving $25 to this project, and share your own Shaver's Creek story on social media!

Welcome to Shaver’s Creek

Visitor Center is now open! Raptor Center coming soon.
The Center has just completed the largest expansion and renovation project in its 40-year history. Our Raptor Center enclosures are still under construction, so you may not be able to see any of the birds of prey until later this fall. Our regular Meet the Creek programming will continue in spring 2019. We’re currently developing exhibits and installations for the Discovery Rooms and bookstore, too!

What’s Open?
The trails in Stone Valley Forest are accessible. Our Penn State credit courses will continue either at the Center, at the University Park campus, or (for the AURORA program) in forests across the country! Outdoor School is a go in its familiar Camp Blue Diamond location, and Summer Camp returned to its familiar home of Shaver’s Creek in 2018. Please look for our traveling naturalists at public events like Arts Fest, Ag Progess Days, and various other events.
