Spend the day outdoors and help one of Missouri's most scenic state parks by volunteering at its annual "Fall Beautification Day" from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Oct 5 at Knob Noster State Park.

This special event will enlist the help of volunteers to get the park ready for fall. Tasks will be available for all ages. Projects include litter patrol, trail work, maintenance, exotic and invasive plant control and more.
Individuals, families, groups and organizations are encouraged to volunteer. To allow staff to prepare projects, registration is recommended, particularly for larger groups. Participants should bring work gloves, insect repellent and drinking water and wear closed-toe shoes.

Knob Noster State Park is located near Knob Noster and Whiteman Air Force Base, off Highway 50 and south on Highway 23 or Highway DD. For more information about the event and to register, call the park at 660-563-2463.
