Cordova Center on the Rock

Programming, Interpretive Planning, Master Planning, Architectural and Interior Design services for the 35,000 square foot visitor's center, a 500-seat performance amphitheater, classrooms, retail shop, restaurants, interactive exhibit area, administrative offices, outdoor exhibits and rural cabins.  A network of trails and paths patterned after the Wolf Trapp model connects people, nature and the arts.  The project’s primary goal is to educate the public on environmental stewardship and build support for conservation of Iowa’s land and water resources.

Cordova Center is a world class visitor center focusing on key themes and messages about the Des Moines watershed and the effect of erosion and sedimentation. These stories connect the visitor to the local area and create a greater understanding of how everyone can contribute to helping the environment.
