Jordan Creek Underground Tours (downtown)
It’s an adventure similar to a cave tour. Once you have walked through the graffiti covered passages of the once pristine Jordan Creek, you and your group will never see a stormdrain the same way. The tour will take us through the ¾ mile stretch of Jordan Creek that runs beneath the streets of downtown Springfield. We will discuss the history of our relationship to the creek and the future of this urban stream. The tour offers opportunities to learn about the water centric history of our city, to reflect on how we have treated waterways in the past, and think about how to treat them in the future.
The Watershed Committee has been giving educational Jordan Creek Underground Tours for over 15 years! To schedule a guided Jordan Creek Underground Tour, contact Jeff Birchler, 417-866-1127
Recommended age for the tour is High School age or older and the tours are free of charge.
