The Center could not have gotten to this point without the amazing support from our community. Thank-you to all who donated and supported the journey towards improving the Nature and Wildlife Center.   They continue to serve the community and follow the mission of promoting conversation about and education pertinent to the flora, fauna, and lands of the Lake Erie Islands ecosystem.

The panthers start the season off every year with Morning Madness–a tradition initiated almost 30 years ago.  The Panthers are excited to start the year and work hard to get ready for the basketball season. The girls look for continued success coming off an undefeated season, and the boys look to bounce back after an injury-riddled season.

The Panthers’ main goal this year is to win the Great Lakes Island Tournament held on Mackinac Island.  The tournament takes place in December; more details to come.  Go Panthers–Get Your Grrrowl On!
