PWA teamed with the City of St. Joseph, the Missouri Department of Conservation and engineering and landscape design consultants to design the $4.5 million nature center that is the “crown jewel” of St. Joseph’s riverfront development.
The Conservation Campus Nature Center, located within the forests and park lands of the 189-acre Cape Girardeau County Park North and adjacent to the Missouri Department of Conservation’s Regional Headquarters, is the sixth such facility in the State of Missouri.
During the warm summer months, Thousand Hills State Parks is a favorite recreation sport for locals and visitors alike. The expansive lake offers plenty of space for swimming, boating and fishing. Materials for the construction of the each project were chosen to harmonize with the natural settings and other buildings located within the park.
