The Cleveland Natural Science Club has been providing nature education services to Greater Clevelanders since 1931.  The Club was founded in 1924 by student natural science teachers from the Education College of Western Reserve University.


In 1931, the Club got its first clubhouse, and they named it Look About Lodge.  When the Club grew, they built a new and larger clubhouse, which is today’s Look About Lodge.  Interesting facts about the history of the Cleveland Natural Science Club and their clubhouse, Look About Lodge, are provided on this website under Historical Highlights.  A complete history of the Cleveland Natural Science Club and Look About Lodge is provided in a book titled Lodge Spirit.  Copies are available at
