Join us for a presentation by Michael Dickey, historian and administrator of Arrow Rock State Historic Site, entitled "A History of the Missouri State Park System." Dickey is a 34-year veteran of the Missouri State Parks system and has been the administrator of Arrow Rock State Historic Site since 1995. Missourians have been enjoying their state parks and historic sites for more than 100 years. Dickey will examine the earliest efforts to establish and fund a park system, the growth of the system and its achievement as one of the top state park systems in the nation. If you enjoy visiting Arrow Rock or any state park facility, you'll want to learn how the system became what it is today.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
