Trail of Tears State Park hosts public meeting May 19

JEFFERSON CITY, MO, MAY 11, 2018 – Trail of Tears State Park invites the public to an informational meeting beginning at 2 p.m. at the park’s visitor center. The public is invited to share comments about the park and its operations. Park staff will be on hand to provide information and to 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 let people know the current status and future plans for the park or historic site, and they offer visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.

Trail of Tears State Park is located at 429 Moccasin Springs, Jackson. For more information about the open house or about other events at the park, call 573-290-5268.
