Description The Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center, located in Wildcat Park, Joplin, Missouri, is adjacent to some of the last remaining chert glades, a globally unique habitat found only in this area and the biologically rich Shoal Creek an important place for migratory birds and other wildlife. Through hands-on environmental education programs and activities, each year we connect thousands of visitors to the natural world. Adjacent to some of the area's unique natural resources,Wildcat Park is a living laboratory to use in conservation education programs. An amazing 1,300-gallon aquarium and Ozark stream is home to fascinating aquatic organisms like rainbow darters and stonerollers, as well as more locally common species like goggle-eye, gar and more. There are five outdoor learning stations near the building and along the park trails. The Center also houses three classrooms, a reference library, interpretive exhibits, children's indoor discovery area, nature store, wildlife viewing area and more, for organized class learning or self guided exploration.
