Oakland Mills Nature Center

For a day of family entertainment at its best, make tracks for the Oakland Mills Nature Center and Park. Learn about the Skunk River Valley and the varieties of plants and animals naturally found in southeast Iowa. Discover how each species of wildlife interacts with its habitat, and test your knowledge of nature by experiencing the exhibits.
