SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Expect to find some trails closed at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center for maintenance.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Expect to find some trails closed at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center for maintenance.

Maintenance at the center includes retaining walls being replaced and wooden decking will be removed and replaced with recycled plastic.

Some trails will be widened and a portion of another trail will be moved away from Galloway Creek due to erosion.

"The reason we're doing this now is that the work is desperately needed,” says Linda Chorice of the Nature Center. “We want to protect the area and make the trails as accessible as possible, and we're doing it during the winter months because typically, there are fewer people out here."

There is no exact end date for the work, but the trails will be open as much as possible.
