SPRINGFIELD, MO. -- The Missouri Department of Conservation invites people to go on scavenger hunts throughout November on trails at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center.

Each Tuesday in November, people of all ages can walk and search for nature-oriented items along the trails. The morning scavenger hunts will be from 9 to 11 a.m., and the afternoon hunts will be 3 to 5 p.m. Registration is available at and then going to the appropriate event.

On the day of the scavenger hunts, a station will be set up on the sidewalk near the nature center's entrance with everything participants will need. Walkers should dress for the weather and plan to spend one to two hours on the trail. A small prize will be given to all who complete the hunt.

Participants are asked to socially distance and wear a mask. The nature center is at 4601 South Nature Center Way.
