Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary
The mission of the Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary is to provide:
• engaging hands-on environmental and natural science education for all ages;
• biodiversity of native plants and animals through wise management of our natural resources;
• understanding that all Earth's inhabitants are part of complex, interdependent ecosystems, and;
• opportunities for quiet reflection and reconnection with the natural world.
I love this place. They do birthday parties. I like the peaceful trails. In October the storybook forest is one cool event. The people here are very helpful. We love the animals in this place.
They do a wonderful job at greeting the public and have ongoing educational programs, comfortable seats to bird while sitting inside and fantastic trails. They are dedicated and knowledgeable people.
Really peaceful and good trails.
A great place to walk trails, commune with nature and learn about the local environment and its inhabitants
A great place to see Missouri wildlife and hike on well maintained trails. Knowledgeable and helpful staff!
