The public is invited to bring their ideas to an informational meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at Arrow Rock State Historic Site. The meeting will run from 6-8 p.m. at Arrow Rock State Historic Site's visitor center, and will cover Arrow Rock, Boone's Lick and Sappington Cemetery state historic sites in Saline County.

Representatives from each of the historic sites will be in attendance to answer questions and provide information on current and future plans for the facilities. Agenda items will include updates on projects that were completed in 2013 and discussion of anticipated projects for all three sites. The meeting is part of an ongoing effort by the department to ensure the public has input on services provided in state parks and historic sites.

A visit to Arrow Rock State Historic Site 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” by American Trails and to encourage Missourians to enjoy the outdoors, Gov. 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.

The Arrow Rock State Historic Site visitor center is located at 39521 Visitor Center Drive just off Highway 41, one-quarter mile south of Arrow Rock. People requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can call the site directly at 660-837-3330. For information on state parks and historic sites, visit mostateparks.com.
