Park visitors are invited to stay for a showing of the 2012 feature film “The Lorax,” a Dr. Seuss story which features the Lorax and his mission to save the trees of his world. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own snacks and seating, and are reminded to dress appropriately for the weather.

Bothwell Lodge State Historic Site is located seven miles north of Sedalia on U.S. Highway 65. For more information on Missouri state parks and historic sites, visit mostateparks.com. Missouri State Parks is a division of the Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
