Enriching Your National Park Experience

Cuyhaoga Valley Environmental Education Center has been educating and hosting groups for over 20 years. Visitors typically stay on-site with us for 1-5 days living and learning in the greatest classroom – natural world. We believe everyone can benefit from time spent in nature. We encourage everyone to find opportunities to have a “CVNP* experience” where ever they are.
