The Schrader Environmental Education Center is part of Oglebay Institute, one of West Virginia’s oldest cultural organizations. The SEEC strives to provide opportunities to celebrate and study the natural world with a commitment to inspire individuals to develop and maintain sustainable relationships with the environment.

The department is housed in the Henry Stifel Schrader Environmental Education Center located in Oglebay Resort.  Constructed from 97% recycled materials including Wheeling newspaper, plastic bottles, bus and tractor tires, and recycled aluminum cans, the Schrader Center is a regional showcase for “Green Architecture” and environmental awareness.

The dynamic programming that takes place inside and outside the Center is as equally impressive as the building. Each year more than 40,000 people from preschoolers to adults participate in hands-on classes, school programs, camping experiences, service learning projects and public events.
