Hidden Creek Savanna
Hidden Creek Savanna is a 3-acre restoration site nestled between the Muny grounds and Central Fields. This site is a strong example of the community support surrounding habitat restoration in urban parks. The revival of this area from mowed turf grass to a savanna filled with native grasses and wildflowers was spearheaded by a volunteer group of Missouri Master Naturalists. Initially planted by the group in 2010, this site continues to be cared for by members of the Missouri Master Naturalists who help monitor for wildlife activity as well. This area is host to more than 100 species of native plants and animals such as bats, rabbits, raccoons, and even the occasional fox can be spotted finding refuge here. This site also provides great pollinator habitat, making it a peaceful place to view monarchs, skippers and swallowtails.
