Did you know that clean lakes start with each of us, in our own backyards?
The Lilly Center is passionate about teaching the next generation. We help students stay curious by teaching them to fish, identify their watershed, understand aquatic critter lifecycles and more. Our K-12 programs preserve the lakes by inspiring students… they are the future of our community!
Teachers, homeschool moms and lifelong learners: we are eager to help you. From curriculum to field trips, we have a wealth of programs and resources for your classroom. We develop everything in-house to align with current teaching standards.
Destination Field Trips
We offer a suite of outdoor, indoor and virtual programing for K-12 students. All curriculum is designed by the Lilly Center education team to meet state and local standards.
Classroom Lake Experience
Each school year, 30+ classrooms throughout Kosciusko County receive a 40-gallon aquarium that houses several native fish species, including sunfish, perch and bass.
Lake Adventure Days
This one-of-kind field trip is specifically for local fourth-grade classrooms. Students get to fish, do water testing, learn about lake habitats and more.
Lilly Center Art Contest
Each year, the Lilly Center Art Contest invites 9-18-year-olds from across Kosciusko County to submit their creative depiction of our local waterways!
