“We hope Mark and his guests enjoy their visit to Bennett Spring State Park near Lebanon and we would thanks to the more than 24,000 people who visited the department exhibits at the State Fair,” said Bill Bryan, director of the Department of Natural Resources' Division of State Parks.

The department presented exhibits, activities and information for the entire family including demonstrations by parks interpreters, information about energy, air, land water, geology, land survey, mining, soil and water conservation and agriculture-related information about the Energize Missouri Cost-Share Program.
