Lakewood Discovery Center's mission is to create environmentally educated citizens by providing a unique setting which creates and nurtures curiosity and interest of nature.  We are located in Salina's Lakewood park which offers 100 acres of urban wildlife sanctuary.  The nature center displays many educational stations that help connect people with the local wildlife through discovery and exploration.  Our wildlife area is bordered by the original Smoky Hill River channel which allows our park to have access to many species of Kansas wildlife.  The park offers a 5 acre lake that supplies many waterfowl a home and many anglers a place to toss a line in the water.  We stock the lake every year with catfish and trout during the fall/winter months.  Lakewood is considered an excellent birding destination, many birders frequent the park and share their finds on our big birding board at the nature center.  The wildlife area also offers nearly 5 miles of nature trails winding through shore front habitat, woodlands, prairie, and river riparian borders.
