Kansas City’s Heart Forest is the world’s first & largest heart shaped forest.

The Heart Forest purpose is to remind ourselves and teach our children about the unique heart spirit in the Heart of America.

"Sometimes miracles are just good people with kind hearts."

“This heart spirit as a resource is more important today than back when Chief Shanandoah and I began the project in 1987.”
