Welcome to the Innsbrook Nature Group (IBK’ng) community website dedicated to living, playing, and learning in harmony with nature and wildlife at Innsbrook, Missouri. Whether you are a full-time homeowner resident, part-time chalet owner, business retreat guest, or recreational visitor we hope you find something of interest on our site and in our newsletters to help you appreciate the natural world which makes Innsbrook so special.
We feel very fortunate to be surrounded by such an abundance of nature and diversity of wildlife, over four very distinctive seasons, that we enjoy in this part of the rural Midwest not far from the junction of the two greatest rivers of North America. There are many reasons that the motto of the Innsbrook (IBK) community for decades has been “Living in Harmony with Nature” which we hope to demonstrate on IBKnature.com.
We call our informal Innsbrook nature group the IBK’ng which is appropriate because we are an active “-ing” group that likes to enjoy Innsbrook by experiencing nature through hiking, wildlife watching, bicycling, kayaking, birding, meditating, walking with our pets, photographing, and playing out in nature whether young or old. But we are definitely not a formal club as we don’t like spending much time inside on meetings, memberships, dues, officers, or bylaws!
We are now publishing our quarterly nature newsletter for residents and property owners under the Newsletter tab in the main menu. Here you will find archives of past newsletters going back to our beginning in 2014 with plenty of special features and nature tips in each edition. To receive notices of future newsletters and event announcements please enter your email address where prompted on the right hand side of any page or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you.
If you are visiting our website and seeking information on a particular topic such as ticks or bears just use the search option also on the right side of each page. If you can’t find what you are looking for, or have suggestions for new content, email us or leave a comment below.
