Welcome to The Green Center

We are located at 8025 Blackberry Avenue in University City, MO 63130.

For general information, call 314-725-8314.

The Green Center's headquarters house is open to the public Wednesdays from 9 am to 3 pm, during special events, and by arrangement.  Our outdoor spaces are open from dawn to dusk.

Founded in 1998, the Green Center is a natural oasis in the heart of the St. Louis metropolitan region. The center is headquartered in a residence built in 1932 and is located in Kaufman Park, University City, Missouri.

The heart of the Green Center is its outdoor spaces which include learning and demonstration gardens on the headquarters' grounds; a half-acre prairie within a short walk of the headquarters; a half-acre Missouri wetland; the 26-acre Ruth Park Woods; and an Arboretum in University City's Heman Park.

We encourage visitors to explore the Green Center's outdoor spaces on their own or take advantage of our classes, guided field trips, summer youth camps, scout badge programs, and service learning and volunteer opportunities. Artists find inspiration here for their photography, painting, and creative writing.

Bringing the outdoors in, The Green Center now provides nature-related art exhibits by talented local artists.
