Our Education Mission

The outreach and education goal of Prairie Fork Conservation Area is to raise the awareness and knowledge of conservation among students and teachers of Missouri. This is accomplished by developing educational programs that will give students and teachers hands on experiences in conservation. Prairie Fork interpretive programs are also intended to show the uniqueness of the area and its emphasis on natural communities.

The theme of Prairie Fork Conservation Area’s outreach and educational programs are “Natural Communities, Their Processes, and Their Functions.” By participating in programs, visitors should know a little bit about Mid-Missouri’s natural communities, the issues affecting natural community management, and how natural communities are important to Missouri plants and wildlife. Personal and non-personal interpretation is used to accomplish these objectives.
