Ozarks Heritage Preserve was formed, in part, to operate dogwood canyon nature park ("dogwood canyon"), although these operations did not begin in 2019. Dogwood canyon is located in Missouri on 10,000 acres of pristine ozark mountain landscape near table rock lake, with miles of crystal-clear trout streams, cascading waterfalls, ancient burial caves, unique hand-built bridges, and deep bluegreen pools where nature lovers can come to learn about the land and history of the ozark mountains. Dogwood canyon was created to provide outdoor education to promote and protect the natural environment of the canyon's wildlife and plant life.
Ozarks Heritage Preserve was formed, in part, to operate ancient Ozarks natural history museum ("the museum") although these operations did not begin in 2019. The museum houses over 75,000 pieces, mostly from private collections, including artifacts from native american tribes such as the local osage, portraits, historical photographs of archeological digs, ancient stoneware, weapons, and clothing. In addition to documenting human history, the museum includes exhibits on wildlife and ecology in the Ozarks that predates human arrival.
Ozarks Heritage Preserve was formed, in part, to operate top of the rock lost canyon cage and nature trail ("the cave trail") although these operations did not begin in 2019. The cave trail is a two-and-a-half mile trail where visitors can experience nature while they learn about the geology and landscape of the ozark mountains. The trail opened in 2014 after hundreds of hours were spent walking the land and painstakingly cutting the cave trail for visitors to be able to immerse themselves yearround (weather permitting) in the dramatic features of the Ozarks, such as stunning rock formations, beautiful views of table rock lake, waterfalls, and the lost canyon cave.
