JEFFERSON CITY, MO, SEPT. 3, 2020 – Representatives from Missouri State Parks invite the public to attend an informational meeting at Wallace State Park at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 17 at the enclosed shelter house patio.

The public is invited to share comments about the park and its operations during the informational meeting. Staff will be present to provide information and answer questions.

Input from the public is important to Missouri State Parks. These informational meetings, which are being held in all state parks and historic sites, help create two-way communication with the public. The meetings give staff the opportunity to inform the public of the current status and future plans for the park or historic site, while also offering visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.

Come prepared with hand sanitizer and bottled water, avoid large and congested crowds, and please stay home if sick. Face coverings are encouraged when social-distancing measures are difficult to maintain, and may be required by local orders.
