Informational meeting planned at Lewis and Clark State Park Oct. 12

The public is invited to bring their ideas an informational meeting on Saturday, Oct. 12 at Lewis and
Clark State Park near Lewis and Clark Village. The meeting will be held from 3 to 4:30 p.m. at the Open Shelter.

Park representatives will provide information on future plans for the facility and answer questions. Visitors are invited to share comments and suggestions about park services and operations. This informational meeting is part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure citizens have input regarding the facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites.
A visit to Lewis and Clark 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, Gov. 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.
Lewis and Clark State Park is located on Highway 138 off of Hwy 45/273 near Lewis and Clark Village. Individuals requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can make arrangements by calling the park directly at 816-579-5564.
