Burr Oak Woods Conservation Nature Center

Discover Nature at Burr Oak Woods! Burr Oak Woods is a showplace for Missouri's fish, forests and wildlife -- a natural oasis in your own backyard, just one mile north of I-70 and minutes from downtown Kansas City.

Join us for a youth, adult or family program or special event. Teachers, contact us to schedule a program for your field trip that will enhance the Next Generation Science Standards. Explore on your own by hiking one of six beautiful trails. Experience the Nature Center as you come eye to eye with some fantastic wild animals, encounter nature's wonders and secrets with hands-on exhibits and catch a glimpse of resident wildlife in the wildlife-viewing room. Step just outside the back doors and into the all new, all natural Nature Explore Classroom.

No fees are charged at the Nature Center.
