About Shavers Creek Environmental Center
As Penn State's nature center, our experienced faculty and staff teach courses for Penn State students and provide environmentally sound programming for schools, children, youth, teachers, and the community. Join us for the experience of a lifetime!
Enjoy our Raptor Center (view a Raptor Center video), with twenty birds of prey, our hiking trails, picnic areas, bookstore and gift shop, and our Discovery Room, with snakes, turtles, kid-friendly displays, and more. Hikers enjoy our many trails around Lake Perez, including the boardwalk over the wetlands at the head of the lake. The trails are also used for mountain biking and, in the winter, snow shoeing and cross-country skiing. Visit on our upcoming events page for our latest outdoor experiences.
