Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center
Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center is situated next to some of the world’s last remaining chert glades, a globally unique habitat found only in this area, and the biologically rich Shoal Creek, where migratory birds and other wildlife thrive.
Highlights of the Center include a 1,300-gallon aquarium that replicates an Ozark stream, nature discovery exhibits, an expansive bird-viewing area, and classrooms for community education programming. It’s also home to the Wildcat Glades Nature Store, operated by Wildcat Glades Friends Group.
