Trash Bash event at Onondaga Cave State Park April 30

The public is invited to an April Trash Bash event at Onondaga Cave State Park.  The event, sponsored by Missouri State Parks, the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Missouri Department of Conservation, will take place at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 30 at the park’s visitor center.

As a part of the statewide No MOre Trash anti-litter campaign, the park adopted a three mile stretch of Highway H just outside the park boundaries. The event will begin with a short safety video and distribution of safety vests and trash bags. Participants should bring gloves, wear sturdy shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.  Refreshments will be served after the clean-up.

Onondaga Cave State Park is located seven miles southeast of the Leasburg exit off of I-44 on Highway H.  For more information about the event, contact the park at 573-245-6576. Missouri State Parks is supported by the one-tenth of one-percent Parks, Soils and Water Sales Tax, which accounts for approximately 75 percent of the budget to repair, improve and maintain state parks and historic sites. Missouri State Parks is a division of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
