For one night only, the Missouri State Museum’s Resources Hall will transform into a world of water. Sponsored by Missouri State Parks, visitors will be able to take a trip down the “river,” learning about wetland features on Friday, Nov. 8 from 6-9 p.m.

From the “Big Muddy” to clear, spring-fed streams, Missourians have long appreciated the state’s water resources. Missouri is also fortunate to be home to many unique and unusual wetland communities including fens, swamps and freshwater marshes. On Nov. 8, tours of the “river” will run every half-hour starting at 6 p.m. There will also be other related hands-on activities and information for this special program, “Exploring Missouri Waters.”

Evening entry to the museum will be through the carriage entrance on the south side of the building, underneath the grand staircase.

The Missouri State Museum, which is part of the Missouri state park system, is located on the first floor of the Missouri State Capitol. For more information, contact the museum at 573-751-2854.
