Member Spotlight: Ozark Adventures
Ozark Adventures is a long-time sponsor of Springfield's greenway trails!
When asked what he thinks of Springfield’s growing trail network, John Haik has plenty to say. You won’t hear him bragging about his longtime financial support of Ozark Greenways, but his pride in our community trail network is clear.
John opened Ozark Adventures in 1979, an outdoor gear and clothing store that has been a top sponsor of every Ozark Greenways spring fundraising event since 1999...! In 2009, John moved his store to 1111 E. Republic Road, just a block from the planned connection of Ward Branch Greenway, which will link this summer 2017. His staff regularly recommends trails to their customers. Sales aren’t the motivator for their involvement - the benefits to the city are.
“It’s amazing what a simple bike ride can do for mental health. As the city grows, it’s going to reward everybody.” —John Haik, Owner of Ozark Adventures (pictured on Ward Branch Greenway)
