The Green Center is an arts and environmental education organization dedicated to helping people understand the natural world through hands-on experiences, restoring native habitats, and encouraging artistic expression inspired by nature. We emphasize the arts by hosting nature-related art exhibits which are open to the public throughout the year on select days of the week at our headquarters’ building. Our new programs are provided in conjunction with our ongoing efforts to restore native Missouri habitat. Our Prairie,Wetland and Ruth Park Woods are thriving ecosystems that provide much needed habitat for indigenous and migrating species and outdoor classrooms where children and adults can explore the Missouri landscape as it existed prior to westward expansion. We are increasing our efforts to propagate native Missouri plants for re-introduction into our Prairie, Wetland and Woods. To support our propagation and restoration efforts, we have installed a greenhouse at our headquarters’ building. Now completed, the greenhouse will provide a year-round growing environment and all-season laboratory for horticultural studies.
