Club Shedd

Do you have what it takes to be in the club? We invite you to be a member of Club Shedd, a team of creative and driven teens who will work together alongside Shedd professionals to tackle real challenges. Club Shedd provides teens with skill-building opportunities and workshops to help them develop solutions that could impact the aquarium. Projects could include:

  • Designing a tour of our gardens
  • Enriching an animal’s habitat
  • Creating a strategic plan for our recycling program

We can't wait to see what innovative ideas Club Shedd teens come up with!

Environmental education programs are powered in part by support from Exelon.
