Connect With Nature in the Heart of the Ozark Mountains!
Fall 2020 Exploration Adventures!
We're excited to guide your family or small group on hikes and outdoor lessons in a safe, distanced environment. Choose as many hikes and lessons as you want - and stay for a couple of hours, stay for a day, or stay overnight!
Guided Hikes: Choose among 4 distinct hikes and learn about geology, forestry, botany, history, and so much more.
Guided Night Hikes: Let us lead you on an exciting and beautiful trek into nature at night
Outdoor Classroom Lessons: We have engaging outdoor, hands-on lessons ranging from radio tracking and compost to plants and animals.
Ozark Natural Science Center is committed to protecting the health and well-being of our staff and visitors. To support efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, ONSC cancelled 2020 fall school programs. We are excited to offer expanded virtual programs and small-group on-site programs this fall that continue to enhance the understanding, appreciation and stewardship of the Ozark natural environment.
About ONSC's School Programs
ONSC offers a unique, immersion-based approach to learning about nature and the natural sciences. Students visit us for authentic science learning experiences that are correlated with national and state science learning standards and provide in-depth education in biology, ecology, geology, and social studies – all while students have fun hiking and experiencing nature.

If you're not finding the exact program that you want, we are happy to work with you and create an adventure for you, your children, or your students!
