  • Fantastic place for the whole family! Programs, trails, exhibits. Did I mention everything is free?! We checked out one of their backpacks for our hike. It included a really nice pair of binoculars, an electronic bird sounds device, leaf rubbing kit, a kids magnifying mirror for critters, and more. They even gave my boys free books on Missouri snakes, and one about frogs and toads of Missouri. As a parent on a budget, this place is a gold mine!
  • Had a great time at the nature center! Today we went for a quick walk (only 15/20 minutes) but there are lots of trails to explore for people with the time! What a beautiful location.
