Missouri State Parks will hold an informational meeting Aug. 22 at Clark's Hill/Norton State Historic Site in Osage City.

The meeting will begin at 2:30 p.m. at the trailhead.

To share information about the stewardship work being completed at the site, as well as history of the area, a park volunteer will lead a natural resource and historical hike starting at 1:30 p.m.

The public is invited to share comments about the site and its operations during the informational meeting. Staff will be present to provide information and answer questions.

These informational meetings, which are being held in all state parks and historic sites, are intended to create two-way communication with the public, according to a news release from Missouri State Parks — giving staff the opportunity to let people know the current status and future plans for the park or historic site and offering visitors the opportunity to comment on the facilities.
