Explore a piece of the Ozarks at this serene nature center.

Springfield Conservation Nature Center is located just north of Lake Springfield in Springfield, Missouri. It features 3-miles of walking trails, a visitor center with nature exhibits and an indoor wildlife viewing area, plus a covered picnic area outside. Over 170 different animal species live within the 80 acres of the natural landscape, so bring your binoculars to get a closer look while you walk around outside. There are three viewing platforms where you can get great pictures of the forests, glades, and prairies, and there is also a photo blind situated next to the lake where you can watch the shorebirds.

The Springfield Conservation Nature Center is open Tuesday through Saturday from 8 am to 5 pm. Visitors can take self-guided tours of the grounds anytime between 8 am and 8 pm (March 1 through October 31) and between 8 am and 6 pm during the off-season. There are several spots where buses and RVs can pull through and park on the east side of the main parking lot, making it a great attraction for larger groups. Explore these natural surroundings in Springfield, Missouri with your friends and family.
