Aquatics

A cool, clear Missouri stream or creek is a great place to spend a warm summer day. Each stream is full of life; some can be seen swimming by while others stay hidden. Join us as we dive below the water’s surface and discover what aquatic creatures are hidden in our creeks and what role they play. Meet us at the pavilion next to Shoal Creek and a short drive down the hill from the Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center. This is a partnership event between the Missouri Department of Conservation, Wildcat Glades Nature Group, and Joplin Parks and Recreation.
