Twin Pines Conservation Education Center

This education center offers opportunities for hiking, bird watching, nature photography and other nature-related activities. Trails through the area provide access to pine-oak woodlands. Youth fishing clinics are allowed by special permit. Hunting is not permitted.

Because of its location in one of Missouri's most productive forests, Twin Pines places a special emphasis upon the history of the Ozarks timber industry. Displays at Twin Pines include vintage logging equipment; a log cabin; and an early 20th century schoolhouse.

A restored 1946 Chevrolet panel truck, outfitted with a generator and movie projector, celebrate the department's early efforts to spread conservation messages to Ozark communities that had no electricity.

Information and maps are available for viewing the elk, which are located at nearby Peck Ranch.
