The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education

Since its incorporation in July 1965, The Schuylkill Center for Environmental Education (originally named Schuylkill Valley Nature Center) has focused on being a regional and national leader in urban environmental education. Today, school programs start at the Kindergarten level and go all the way through Graduate School, including teacher workshops. The grounds, located on agricultural land that was farmed until the mid-1960’s, have grown steadily from the 11 acres originally given to the center by founders Lawrence M. C. Smith, Mrs. Lawrence M. C. Smith, Mrs. Robert R. Meigs, and Henry H. H. Meigs.
