Project Overview

Tiger Salamanders, red-earred sliders, glass lizards, and skinks are just a few of the animal ambassadors we hope to share with the community this year and many years to follow.  Animal Ambassadors help our community realize the need to keep the environment free of man-made debris and polutants from our water.  

These beautiful animals require specific environments and food to keep them healthy and ready to educate young and old alike.  This project is designed to outfit the animals with food, shelter, and the occassional veterenarian visit. 

Our goal is $3000.  This wil enable the purchase of adequate housing and care for the animals.  It will also allow for training for staff and volunteer training pertaining to each individual ambassador.

About Wildcat Glades Friends Group

Wildcat Glades Friends Group is comprised of community volunteers who care deeply about Wildcat Park and the surrounding natural environment, including the globally unique chert glade ecoslystem located within the park.  Our mission is to protect the area known as Wildcat park, the chert glade environment, habitat, and wildlife by promoting awareness and sustainability, providing education and recreation space and programs, and sponsoring nature-based activities.  

We believe the park is a gem neatly packed in Joplin's backyard.  We see thousands of visitors annually.  They hike, picnic, swim, have gatherings, host scout activities, kayak, just to name a few.  Our guests often participate in free programing offered by Wildcat Glades Friends Group.  While it may be free to the general public, it certainly has a dollar cost.  Our goal is to continue to offer and expand our offering of nature education to all who are willing to listen.  We want to create a community dedicated to the preservation and the conservation of Wildcat Glades Park.

Our area of focus stretches from Redings Mill Bridge to the Falls in Joplin.  We have agreements with Newton County and the City of Joplin to maintain the area and offer programing.
