Welcome to Shaver’s Creek

Our Visitor Center will reopen January 26! Raptor Center closed until further notice.
The Center has just completed the largest expansion and renovation project in its 40-year history—and we’re finishing up all-new enclosures for our birds of prey. Right now, we’re briefly closed to visitors this winter, and will reopen our doors January 26. 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.
