Nature Center

The Jones County Central Park Nature Center draws thousands of visitors each year. Central Park is located in the center of Jones County and is within a 15 to 30 minute drive from all communities in the county.

The primary purpose of the Nature Center is to provide a place for environmental education. Programs for the public, schools, and other groups are held regularly at the center.  Several educational displays and hands-on activities can be viewed in the Nature Center most weekdays Monday through Friday. 

The Nature Center has exhibit space and a medium-sized meeting room with a kitchenette. 

From Memorial Day through Labor Day the Nature Center is open from 1 p.m. to  5 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.  Throughout the year it is open most weekdays but call the office at (563) 487-3541 or Michele at (319) 481-7987 to ensure availability.
