The J.B. and Johnelle Hunt Family Ozark Highlands Nature Center opened its doors on December 11, 2020. The center is located at 3400 N 40th Street in Springdale, AR and is open to the public with reserved time-entry tickets. The 62-acre campus belonged to the City of Springdale, who then donated it to the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission to be used for conservation and education. The 32,000 square foot facility features a main exhibit hall, three indoor classrooms, an indoor archery and BB gun marksmanship center, and a creativity center. Outside, there are 2 pavilions that will be utilized for outdoor classrooms, a 3-D archery challenge, and 25-acres of restored prairie. In 2021, the Razorback Greenway will be connected to the trails that run through the property. The Ozark Highlands Nature Center was funded by more than $14 million in private funding, land donations, and federal grants.
