Hiking

Meet at the Nature Center and carpool to Prairie State Park which encompasses nearly 4,000 acres of tallgrass prairie in western Barton County near Lamar. This 2.5-mile hike covers uneven and possible muddy terrain. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring binoculars if you have them. Bring a sack lunch, water, snacks, insect repellent, and sunscreen.

Special Event

Celebrate Missouri's most magical insect at Fireflies at Farmers Park! Stop by the garden area of Farmers Park anytime between 5:30 and 9:30 pm. Bring your family to make a firefly craft, play firefly games, and learn why fireflies blink. Come closer to 9 pm to catch fireflies. Nature Center staff and volunteers will be around to answer questions and offer fun facts. Check out the live band and food vendors at the Farmers Park courtyard, too. All ages.
