Founded in 1998, the Green Center is a natural oasis in the heart of the St. Louis metropolitan region. The center is headquartered in a residence built in 1932 and is located in Kaufman Park, University City, Missouri.

The heart of the Green Center is its outdoor spaces which include a nature explore classroom, learning and demonstration gardens on the headquarters' grounds; a half-acre prairie within a short walk of the headquarters; a half-acre Missouri wetland and the 26-acre Ruth Park Woods.

We encourage visitors to explore the Green Center's outdoor spaces on their own or take advantage of our classes, guided field trips, spring and summer youth camps, scout badge programs, and service learning and volunteer opportunities. Artists find inspiration here for their photography, painting, and creative writing.

Bringing the outdoors in, The Green Center provides nature-related art exhibits by talented local artists.
