In recent days, Clay County was made aware of misinformation being circulated via social media regarding the Smithville Lake Nature Center construction project. The County would like to clarify that progress continues, and the project remains in the planning and evaluation phase. At no point did work stop on the Nature Center, which was approved by a vote of the Clay County Commission.
Clay County looks forward to providing the community with a facility where a passion and curiosity for nature can grow through unique learning experiences while keeping construction on schedule and at a cost in line with the project budget.
