[Photo Story] The New And Improved Shaver’s Creek

Following a two-year, $7.5 million expansion and renovation project, Shaver’s Creek re-opened last weekend and showcased the return of its upgraded outdoor education field lab and nature center.

The welcome desk in the new Visitor’s Center is fresh and ready for new visitors.
The bookstore and some of the exhibits and are still in progress, but there are plenty of creatures to see in the meantime.
The new Litzinger Herpetology Center is full of reptiles (in case you didn’t know what herpetology meant)…
…such as this Eastern ratsnake…
…and these Eastern painted turtles.
This cozy fireplace reminds visitors of the center’s roots.
Take a peek at the Louis E. and Patricia H. Silvi Discovery Room…
…which features a “Touch and Feel” table.
The Donald W. Hamer Classroom Building looks like the only  *real* quiet place in State College to study.
There are a lot of exhibits outside as well, including the Raptor Center, which is still under construction.
This picturesque pavilion is located next to the new classrooms and overlooks the Raptor Center.
Don’t worry: Shaver’s Creek’s bird exhibits are still waiting to welcome new visitors.
