Education Center and Treehouse 

Located across from the Mill are a one-of-a-kind Conservation & Education Center and a Treehouse featured on the Animal Planet TV show, Treehouse Masters. Dogwood Canyon Nature Preserve and the foundation will continue to educate others about the importance of protecting, conserving and preserving the great outdoors by taking the cause into the classrooms of the Conservation & Education Center, the Campfire Club Amphitheater and the hands-on Treehouse activities. You won’t want to miss this chance to learn more about the beauty of the Ozarks. The lower level of the Conservation & Education Center features the DOGWOOD CANYON NATURE PRESERVE™ General Store, allowing you to take a piece of the Dogwood Canyon experience home with you.  




The first parcels of the property were acquired in 1990 by Johnny Morris, founder/CEO of Bass Pro Shops. The park is owned and managed by the Dogwood Canyon Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the canyon’s natural plant and wildlife environment. The Foundation promotes environmental conservation by maintaining the park and providing the public with an unspoiled setting for exploration and the enjoyment of various outdoor activities.

The purposes of the Dogwood Canyon Foundation are to promote natural conservation, and to protect the natural environment and its wildlife and plant life by acquiring and maintaining ecologically significant, undeveloped land to benefit the general public. To achieve its purpose, the Foundation owns, operates and maintains Dogwood Canyon Nature Park.
