Once a month, park rangers host nature bingo.

The bingo cards have plant and animals indigenous to Missouri, and when given a clue — kids can guess which wildlife is the answer.

If they get the answer right, they get to put a bingo chip down. The goal is to have kids learn something new, and teach people about Missouri’s natural habitat. 

Prairie State Park Ranger Rebecca Knox says, “Yeah, I love passing on the knowledge to them and watching them learn new things, create new experiences for them. It’s really fun when we have campers, like people from out-of-state or big groups of scouts that come in, and that makes it a lot of fun when we have a lot of people.”

Nature bingo is held once a month at the nature center in Prairie State Park.
