This was one of our favorite field trips when we lived in Blue Springs! Between the trails, lake, and fantastic staff, this is THE place to learn about nature. They also have free family events throughout the year. Kids can learn about fish, insects, birds, etc. Seriously, I can't say enough good things about this place!
