Soaring Eagle Nature Center
The Soaring Eagle Nature Center has been a part of the Clinton, Iowa community for over 30 years. Outdoor activities are held regularly for the public and the relatively new Prairie Pastures Dog Park draws many visitors daily.
The emergence of the Nature Barn and Flannery Country School as a Silos and Smokestacks (National Parks Service) site is very exciting. Area school districts have for decades benefited from the close local and professional interpretation of curriculum sensitive natural themes.
