The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes was founded in 1966 as part of a grassroots effort to resist the construction of the Clark and Lee Freeways, which would have been built through the Shaker Parklands. The Nature Center teaches environmental stewardship and preserves the natural resources of the forest and wetlands along Doan Brook and the Shaker Lakes.
Visit the Nature Center's website http://shakerlakes.org to learn more about their history, programs, hikes, plant sale, benefits, summer camps, and educational workshops.
Listen to interviews of several major participants in the fight to keep the Clark and Lee freeways from being built through the Shaker Lakes wetlands area, and the efforts that led to the founding of the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes in 1966. Click here to visit CSU's site where you can download and listen to audio files of the interviews.
Cleveland Memory's web exhibit, "Cleveland's Forgotten Freeways," provides useful background on the freeway revolts in Cleveland and presents seventeen route location studies from Cleveland State University's Special Collections.
