MPA's 35th Annual Meeting Planned for Oct. 6 through 8

The 35th Annual Meeting of the Missouri Parks Association is planned for October 6 through 8 at Arrow Rock. This three-day gathering will highlight the cultural attributes of the area, including a tram tour (on the MPA tram!) of the nearby Katy Trail from the Rocheport trailhead Friday afternoon, an in-depth tour of Arrow Rock Saturday afternoon, and on Sunday afternoon a visit to the American Indian Cultural Center at nearby Van Meter State Park. The high point will be the dinner Saturday evening in the Huston Tavern, the first facility in the state park system. The "State of the Parks" address Saturday morning and annual meeting Sunday morning will be in the exceptional park visitor center and museum. Hikers may also enjoy the adjacent Big Muddy National Wildlife Refuge with trails to the Missouri River. Registration for the 35th annual MPA meeting will close at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 21.
