Bring your ideas to an informational meeting at Pomme de Terre State Park on June 14

The public is invited to bring their ideas to an informational meeting on Friday, June 14 at Pomme de Terre State Park near Pittsburg. The informational meeting
will begin at 7 p.m. in the campground amphitheater.

Recent accomplishments at the park and future plans will be highlighted during the informational meeting. Visitors are invited to share comments on the park’s services and operations.

This informational meeting is part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure citizens have input on facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites. People requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can make arrangements by calling the park directly at 417-852-4291.
A visit to Pomme de Terre State Park is also a great opportunity to log miles as a part of the Governor’s 100 Missouri Miles challenge. 

To celebrate Missouri’s distinction as the “Best Trails State” by American Trails and to encourage Missourians to enjoy the outdoors, Governor Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon are inviting Missourians to join them in completing 100 Missouri Miles of outdoor physical activity by the end of the year.

For more information and to take the Challenge, visit 100MissouriMiles.com. Participants can also share adventures, post photos and learn about upcoming events by connecting with 100 Missouri Miles on Facebook and Twitter.

Pomme de Terre State Park is located off Highway 64 in Hickory County. For more information about state parks and historic sites, visit mostateparks.com. Missouri State Parks is a division of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
