Hope and Stanley Adelstein, lifelong residents of Cleveland Heights, discuss their experiences as supporters of the Shaker Lakes Nature Center. The couple describe their role in the grassroots battle to stop highway construction through the Shaker Lakes during the 1960s, which laid the groundwork for the creation of the Center. The Adelsteins were also involved with the founding of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which is discussed in some detail. Stanley Adelstein, an active member of the City Club of Cleveland, discusses that organization and its recent environmental programming. Additional topics include renewable energy and green building, the Cleveland Foundation, the Earth Day Coalition, and Cain Park in Cleveland Heights.
