Kids to Parks Day

May 20 @ 8:30 am - 2:00 pm

Come out to Thousand Hills State Park to celebrate Kids to Parks Day Saturday May 20th!

8:30am-12pm Kids Fishing – Join the Missouri Department of Conservation for a morning of fishing at the marina! This will be going on at the same time as the 40th annual Buddy Bass Fishing classic. Kids are eligible to participate in that free event at the same time. Volunteers will be available with gear to help you fish or fish with you! Fishing is open to all ages. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

11:00am Nature Detective Hike – Animals leave behind clues to tell us they have been in the area. Join park staff to explore the many different clues animals leave behind and learn what animals share the park with us. This hike will take place on the Oak Trail located next to the playground on Big Loop Road.

All programs are weather permitting. Check out Thousand Hills State Park on Facebook for cancellations, location changes, and other park information.
