Welcome to our NEW Website!

Posted: Sep. 03, 2021 Visit our Homepage


The South Shore YMCA Natural Science Center is delighted to launch our NEW and improved website, making it easier for our community to find us and interact with all that the SSYMCA Natural Science Center has to offer.

Here, you’ll find quick access to announcements and events, as well as details on Nature Center Preschool, Nature Adventure Camps, STEM/Environmental Education programs, opportunities for volunteering and support… and more!

During this uncertain time of COVID-19, you’ll find that many of our beloved programs are still on hold, including public access to our Vine Hall Art Gallery and EcoZone museum, but we are still here with acres of natural trails to explore, animals to feed and observe, and a vibrant preschool and STEM enrichment programs for young minds to wonder, learn and grow.

Thanks for visiting our new site! Contact Dan Berry at for information on how you or your organization can get involved with our local community treasure, the South Shore YMCA Natural Science Center.
