(2019 Event) 3 DAYS FOR 60 MIN. - 9:00 TO 10:00. The Nature Camp mission is to encourage children's natural curiosity of the outdoors by engaging them in fun and educational activities. The Lake Erie Islands Nature & Wildlife Center has successfully been doing this since 2003. Topics we have covered over the years have been bats, snakes, turtles, fish, butterflies and moths, slugs, caves, and much more. Last year Nature Camp learned all about trees and birds! (2019 Event)
Put-in-Bay Trivia: Along the lovely shores of South Bass Island (Put-in-Bay), five luxury hotels were built by 1888. One of the hotels, The Hotel Victory is referred to as a symbol of the peak of the lavish 1890’s. Being the biggest summer resort in the U.S. at the time, the Hotel Victory was operating 27 years prior to being ruined by a fire on August 14, 1919. Today, you can still see the remains of some of the foundation and its swimming pool at the South Bass Island State Park.
