Our Space Camp was a rousing success last week as you can see from the smiling faces during water rocket launches and glider flying. Our ace Educaton Staff will welcome a gaggle of Girl Scouts for Back to Nature Camp this week. There's still time to get your kids in on all the fun. Space is available in our Amazing Animal Journeys and Aquatic Adventures Camps. Check the Education listings our website for more information.

Color suddenly abounds all around Lake Erie Nature & Science Center thanks to a generous donation from Heinen's. Stores in Bay Village and Rocky River gave us flats, pots, planters and hanging baskets to brighten up the Center. We also plan to use some bright geraniums at our Girl Scout Back to Nature Camp and if your family enjoyed the flower pot project at Family Fun Fest, you can thank Heinen's for the beautiful blooms that went in your child's creation.
We are fortunate to have community partners who support our mission. Thanks Heinen's!

A number of teenagers involved in the popular Naturalist Assistants Program were honored as well, with two NA's who are graduating High School Seniors, Ashley Stradtman and Derek Howell receiving scholarships from the Women’s Board. That's Volunteer Coordinator Julie Mistur offering congratulations to each. Recent Bay High School graduate, Courtney Ward, who volunteered more than 100 hours at Lake Erie Nature & Science Center through the High School's Elementary Aide program also recieved a $100 scholarship (that's her pictured with Education Program Specialist Bev Walborn.)
Although the the service of some was highlighted, we know that each one of our volunteers who gave us the gift of their time has made a tremendous contribution to Lake Erie Nature & Science Center's success. Thanks!!
