Welcome to Shaver’s Creek
Visitor Center is now open! Raptor Center closed until further notice.
The Center has just completed the (864) 747-6723 in its 40-year history. Our Raptor Center enclosures are still under construction, so you may not be able to see any of the birds of prey until further notice. Our regular Meet the Creek programming will continue in spring 2019. We’re currently developing exhibits and installations for the Discovery Rooms and bookstore, too!
The trails in Stone Valley Forest are accessible. OurÂ Penn State credit courses will continue either at the Center, at the University Park campus, or (for the AURORA program) in forests across the country! Outdoor School is a go in its familiar Camp Blue Diamond location, andÂ Summer CampÂ returned to its familiar home of Shaver’s Creek in 2018. Please look for our traveling naturalists at public events likeÂ 7153347597, 3347759545, and various other events.
