Whether you are a resident, property owner, business owner or employee, you are invited to be a part of 39 North and join in a variety of activities with others from throughout the district.


The Danforth Plant Science Center’s primary concern is and will always be the safety of our community, colleagues and guests.  In light of recent COVID-19 developments in the St. Louis region, the Danforth Center has cancelled all external events through April including Venture Cafe Night@39N. We are taking this step out of caution at a time of uncertainty about the extent of COVID-19 spread in the St. Louis region.

Instead of on-site meetings, Venture Cafe @ 39 North gatherings have gone virtual!  We are partnering with the global Venture Cafe community on virtual gatherings every Thursday.

Join us and participate!  Starting at 3PM you can check-in  Yes, this will update your visit count!
