What you'll do

Tour the facility meeting (behind glass) and learning about the resident education animals including Owls, Eagles, Hawks, Reptiles, Turtles, Squirrels, Opossums, Cody the Coyote, and more. We will talk about how each individual animal came to the facility and learn about their species. Weather permitting, we will do a short and easy hike around the building on one of Lakeside’s Nature trails.

Chloe

I am a wildlife biology major and dedicate my life- working with domestic animals and volunteering with wildlife in my free time- to animals. I have been visiting Lakeside Nature Center all my life and am now a volunteer. Every day I walk into Lakeside I learn something new and I want more people to experience the educational tour of Lakeside and meet the animals who call it home. Lakeside is essentially a rehab facility, we work with injured wild animals with the intention of RELEASING them into the wild. But for animals who wouldn’t be able to survive in the wild, Lakeside becomes their home.

Where you'll be

Lakeside Nature Center is a wildlife rehab and education facility operating under parks and recreation. It is across from the Kansas City Zoo and is free entry. The building itself is small- filled with wild animals native to Missouri- but is surrounded by hiking and nature trails and the whole experience will make anyone feel closer to Mother Nature and Earth, our home!
