We offer educational facilities and program opportunities throughout the year to any school or group interested in pursuing outdoor conservation education. It is our goal to raise the awareness and knowledge of the need for conservation among students of Missouri. Public use is limited to appointment only.
Developed in conjunction with Discover Nature Schools and Missouri's Science Frameworks, the focus of our educational programs is to investigate science outdoors, or as Mrs. Jones says, "Bring the kids to explore, experience, get dirty and learn." There is no charge to the school districts for any program at Prairie Fork Conservation Area. In fact, we may be able to provide grants through Discover Nature Schools to help with the cost of busing for programs at Prairie Fork Conservation Area.
To make or request an appointment please visit our Calendar or email Amber Edwards, Education Coordinator or call (573) 254-3990, and we will be happy to schedule your activities. Please contact us one month in advance to schedule an event or for further information regarding our programs.
