Welcome to Wildcat Glades

The Wildcat Glades Conservation & Audubon Center, located in Wildcat Park, Joplin, Missouri, is adjacent to some of the last remaining chert glades, a globally unique habitat found only in this area, and the biologically rich Shoal Creek,an important place for migratory birds and other wildlife.

The Audubon Center is a partnership project of Audubon Missouri, the City of Joplin and the Missouri Department of Conservation. Opened in 2007, the Center itself is a celebration of nature. Innovative "green" technologies create a truly distinctive building in keeping with our mission of "We guide learning.  Live what we teach.  Nurture respect for nature and thrive outdoors". The local Missouri Department of Conservation offices are also located on site.
