SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (News-Leader) – Missouri State University has signed off on a $2.2 million Ozarks Education Center that will be built on the shores of Bull Shoals Lake.
The project includes a classroom meeting space that can accommodate about 40 students, and two small cabins “pods” where eight to 10 students or researchers can stay while conducting research projects related to the Ozarks’ environment.
Janice Greene, MSU professor of biology, said the Ozarks Education Center will be built on land donated to MSU and is situated far from any towns to help produce an atmosphere conducive to field research.
“It will be used mostly by college graduate students and adult groups,” Greene said.
The new center will complement the Bull Shoals Field Station
