There are few things more exciting than getting out for a nice walk at the beginning of spring.

This program will be for Nature Explorers, but is open to family groups as well. This is part of a partnership program between Wildcat Glades and the Shoal Creek Conservation Education Center.

Adult Program: Native Plant Gardening
March 21 @ 6:00 to 8:00 pm | For ages 13 and older| Wildcat Glades Education Cottage
Join us to learn about planting native Missouri plants right in your own yard! Missouri has many native plant species that are both beautiful and functional for ecosystems. Small yard spaces can be good habitats wildlife, and even a container with native plants on an apartment balcony is valuable.
