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 appreciating, conserving and understanding our natural world. The local Missouri Department of Conservation offices are also located on site.

Can you imagine Wildcat Park without the Bald Eagle soaring in the winter?  Or your home feeder without Baltimore Orioles in the spring?  A new study by National Audubon Society scientists reveals climate change threatens the survival of nearly half of the bird species in the continental US and Canada.  Many could become extinct in this century without decisive action to protect their habitats and reduce the severity of climate change.  Learn more about the study, how it affects our area, and what you can do to help at www.audubon.org
