JEFFERSON CITY, MO, NOV. 16, 2010 -- With clear blue skies and cool temperatures, it’s a great time to explore Katy Trail State Park. There is still plenty of good weather to experience the changing landscape and the various communities along the trail, which extends from Clinton to the St. Charles area.

There is also plenty of time to celebrate 2010 as the Katy Trail’s 20th anniversary. As a part of the anniversary, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources has been sponsoring a Ticket Book Program, which is designed to encourage people to visit every community along the Katy Trail corridor. The program was originally scheduled to go through the end of October but has been extended until Dec. 31 so you can still take advantage of this opportunity.

During the ticket book program, the first 1,000 participants who collect a ticket book stamp for each community will receive a prize package that will include a 20th anniversary t-shirt and water bottle. Edward Jones is the sponsor of the ticket book prize package as well as the sponsor for all Katy Trail 20th anniversary events.

If you still have your ticket book but have not had a chance to complete it, continue to visit the communities until it is full or until Dec. 31. If you want to start the program, you can receive a ticket book program by contacting the department at 800-334-6946 or moparks@dnr.mo.gov.
