JEFFERSON CITY, MO. - In an effort to ensure that the public has an opportunity to provide input regarding services in state parks and historic sites, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources invites you to bring your ideas to an informational meeting on Friday, Nov. 6, at the St. Charles trailhead of Katy Trail State Park. The meeting will address issues related to the eastern section of Katy Trail State Park and Edward "Ted" and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park in West Alton. The meeting will be held from noon until 1:30 p.m. and is open to the public.

Representatives from the parks will discuss the status of current construction projects and the continuing development at both facilities. Wetland restoration work is currently underway at Edward "Ted" and Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park and the department recently rerouted the access path to interpretive panels at the park. Visitors are invited to share comments and suggestions about both sites.

The St. Charles trailhead of Katy Trail State Park is located at Boone's Lick Road and Riverside Drive in St. Charles.
