Shaver’s Creek Environmental Center is closed through May 15 as part of Penn State’s efforts to maintain public health and safety in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak. University-sponsored events, including the Maple Harvest Festival and a number of public programs and school visits, are also canceled or postponed. For questions, please contact us at ShaversCreek@psu.edu. For the latest updates and information, visit: sites.psu.edu/virusinfo.

Kids Corner

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 Aviary, and visit the bookstore and gift shop!

How Much Does It Cost?

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