In 1989, a group of individuals held meetings to develop a concept plan for a residential field science center in the Arkansas Ozarks. These meetings resulted in the creation of the Ozark Natural Science Center in 1990. By 1994, the Ewing Centre was complete along with housed administrative offices, the kitchen, and the dining hall. Today, their school-based programming allows them to offer hands-on, experiential field science opportunities to students from northwest and central Arkansas, as well as weddings and events.

Best decision ever best venue ever
We booked the Ozark Natural Science Center for my wedding reception venue! This place checked every box for us! A nice relaxed atmosphere, beautiful architecture and windows in the reception hall (Ewing center), lodging for family and friends, a huge deck, a fire pit, and catering! Roslyn was an excellent communicator and answered every question we threw at her (there were a lot! Haha) She and the rest of the staff were super hospitable and outstandingly accommodating. They went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and the vision of our day was how we wanted! They allowed us ample time to set up and take down so we were not stressed the day of the wedding. That was a huge relief for me. They offered catering not only for the reception, but both Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast and lunch for our friends and family who stayed in the cabins with us! In all we rented the Ewing center, the deck, the fire pit, the Harmon cabin for 2 nights, the Compton cabin for a night, catering for 85 guests for the reception, and breakfast for 25. You get every bang for your buck here. And it all goes back to helping educate kiddos! From the bride and groom perspective, everything was perfect! They even had a small apartment secluded from the rest of the cabins for a honeymoon suite! Having our reception here and booking this campus for the weekend has got to be one of the best decisions of my life. Our friends and family LOVED IT. I’ll cherish my memories at the ONSC forever! I’m super stoked to come back for anniversary’s in the future!Sent on 03/30/2019
