The Prairie Oak Nature Center offers fun environmental education programs for all ages. Stop by the Nature Center or look in the Leawood Parks and Recreation Guide to see programs that are currently scheduled. In addition to the scheduled programs our on-site naturalist will work with teachers, youth leaders and other organizations to provide a program just for their group.

The Nature Center Activity Room is available to rent for small receptions or meetings. The activity room offers seating for up to 30 people.

Celebrate your child's birthday at the Nature Center. We can design a birthday program that can include nature crafts, outdoor adventures, animal presentations, and games.

Call 913-681-0902 for information on programs, birthdays and room rentals.


The Nature Center is home to many live, native reptiles, amphibians and fish indoors and outside the building is a bird feeding area, garden pool and butterfly garden. 

So come visit our exhibits, stop by our library, stroll through the gardens, and discover different habitats along our two-mile walking trail. There is something for everyone!
