Jack Ullman of the Shaker Lakes Canoe Club discusses the origins and history of the Club, which dates back to the early years of 20th century but which ceased to exist by the end of the 1970s. Ullman recalls his early experiences at Shaker Lakes, reminisces about boating on the Lakes, describes the wildlife and botanical variety of the nature preserve, puts the Lake in the context of Cleveland's outdoor recreational assets, and recounts the grassroots battle to stop encroaching highway development in the Shaker Heights-Cleveland Heights area.
