EDVENTURE PROGRAMS – WHERE EDUCATION AND ADVENTURE COME TOGETHER

Through in-depth, hands-on learning, the Conservation EdVentures team aims to inspire students of all ages to take an active role in the conservation of our planet’s natural resources. It is our goal to provide students with a fun and safe environment to further their knowledge in the areas of biology, chemistry, earth science, engineering, fishing, hunting, survival and more. Conservation EdVentures promotes STREAM (science, technology, recreation, engineering, art and math) by building the next generation of scientist, conservationist and naturalist.

Please note:

  • These programs will be held at the John A. and Genny Morris Conservation Education Center located next door to the main entrance of Wonders of Wildlife. Participants should enter through the main doors of the Education Center, then turn left to enter the WOLF School.
  • Pre-registration is required and closes 2 weeks prior to the program.
  • If registration is closed, please call 417-225-1162 as we may be able to accommodate additional students if there have been cancellations.
