Informational meeting scheduled at Finger Lakes State Park Sept. 20

The public is invited to bring their ideas to an informational meeting on Friday, Sept. 20 at 6 p.m. at Finger
Lakes State Park near Columbia. The meeting will be held in the park office. Park staff will be available to provide the most recent information about the park and answer questions. This informational meeting is part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure that citizens have input on facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites.
A visit to Finger Lakes 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.
Finger Lakes State Park is located 10 miles north of Columbia off Highway 63 in Boone County. Individuals requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can make arrangements by calling the park directly 573-443‑5315. For information about state parks and historic sites, visit mostateparks.com. Missouri State Parks is a division of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
