Ozark Natural Science Center will open a new satellite location at Lake Fayetteville, and a grand opening celebration and fundraiser is set for this Saturday.

The event, called Call of the Wild, will include live music by Still on the Hill, Winslow Depot, and Daniel Moody, along with activities, food, and more at the new Lake Fayetteville facility, located at 599 E Lakeview Drive in Springdale.

Ozark Natural Science Center, whose main campus is near Huntsville, began leasing out the Lake Fayetteville Environmental Study Center and around 200 acres around the lake for the new facility.

The center plans to offer “a diverse range of urban programming, including day camps, public programs, open houses, guided hikes, and school programs by invitation,” officials said.

In addition to the music, the Call of the Wild event this weekend will include a silent auction, nature and science games, radio tracking, and more.

Tickets to the event are $25 for adults, and $10 for kids. Kids 10 and under get in free. Dinner and complementary beverages are included in the price of the ticket.
