Nature films and documentaries will be shown indoors on Dec. 26 at MDC's Burr Oak Woods Nature Center in Blue Springs. But the exhibit area also has comfortable places to watch wildlife visiting the bird feeders outside the center's windows. This wild turkey paid a visit during a snow a few winters ago.
A new children’s indoor play area with larger-than-life critters was added in time for Burr Oak Woods Nature Center’s 30th anniversary in October. Rilee Harris, 4, of Blue Springs enjoyed the area during her recent visit.
