The public is invited to attend an informational meeting at Knob Noster State Park near Knob Noster on Saturday, Aug. 31. The meeting will be held from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Camp Bobwhite Dining Hall.

Representatives from the park will be on hand to discuss the continuing work being done on the McAdoo Equestrian Trail and the park’s 2013 State Park Youth Corps involvement. Representatives from the facility will also provide information on future plans for the facility and answer questions. Visitors are invited to share comments and suggestions about the facility. The meeting is part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure the public has input and knowledge on services provided in parks and historic sites.

A visit to Knob Noster State Park is also a great opportunity to log miles as a part of the Governor’s 100 Missouri Miles challenge. To celebrate Missouri’s distinction as the “Best Trails State” and to encourage Missourians to enjoy the outdoors, Governor Jay Nixon and First Lady Georganne Nixon are inviting Missourians to join them in completing 100 Missouri Miles of outdoor physical activity by the end of the year.

For more information and to take the Challenge, visit 100MissouriMiles.com. Participants can also share adventures, post photos and learn about upcoming events by connecting with 100 Missouri Miles on Facebook and Twitter.

Camp Bobwhite is located along the south side of Highway DD, and it is approximately 1.5 miles west from Highway 23.
