Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center

The Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center showcases the cultural history and natural resources of southeast Missouri.

Indoors, the nature center features hands-on exhibits for all ages, including the Corbin Collection of American Indian artifacts, freshwater aquariums, wildlife viewing areas, classrooms and an auditorium.

Outdoors, explore the White Oak Trace, which has two miles of trails winding through poplar and oak trees, sinkholes and a small, man-made swamp. The nature center grounds include gardens featuring native wildflowers. At the Kid's Fishing Pond, children younger than 16 can try their hand at fishing for a variety of species. Poles and worms are available for use at no charge.
