Sheldrake Environmental Center is a 60-acre oasis of land and water that provides a sanctuary for wildlife and people.

Enjoy the quiet beauty of the property

Our trails are open every day from dawn until dusk. When you join us and savor the delights of nature, we hope you’ll become more aware of the responsibilities we share as stewards of these natural resources.

Our Mission: To inspire awareness and action in the community and to preserve, protect and enhance local resources.

Spark a lifelong love of nature

Our job is to get kids excited about discovering nature. We take the time and effort to create the best curriculum possible that connects kids to their environment and helps them form a sense of place. We used inquiry-based techniques to teach about recycling, water, life cycles, habitats, composting, ecosystems and so much more!

All students, even the very young, are scientists when they are learning with us. And they benefit from working under the guidance of equally-enthusiastic adult learners. Our Volunteer Environmental Educators are gifted individuals who truly make learning come alive! They invest their time and talent to bring science into focus and to connect students with the natural world.
