Ozark National Scenic Riverways to Host Open House for New Interpretive Plan 

 

EMINENCE, MO:   Ozark National Scenic Riverways invites the public to attend an open house on Wednesday, August 23, from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Methodist Fellowship Hall in Eminence, Missouri.   The purpose of this open house is to collect information to aid in the development of a new Long Range Interpretive Plan for the park.    Park rangers will be available to discuss your ideas for outreach and public programs with you which, in turn, will assist in the development of services that meet the needs of our visitors.  The Methodist Fellowship Hall is located at 18228 Church Street in Eminence, approximately 2 blocks west of the intersection of Highway 19 and Highway 106.

 

The Long Range Interpretive Plan will help guide the creation of interpretive and educational programs, outreach efforts, media, exhibits and publications for the next seven to ten years.  It will help set goals and priorities for interpretation and education.  As part of the process for developing a new long-range plan for interpretive and educational outreach activities at Ozark National Scenic Riverways, it is important to include input and ideas from our stakeholders and partners.  Please stop by the open house to share your ideas and feedback!

 

We look forward to hearing from the public and encourage all to visit the park’s website at www.nps.gov/ozar or our Facebook page for further updates.  For more information, please contact Dena Matteson at (573) 323-4814 or dena_matteson@nps.gov

 

 Ozark National Scenic Riverways preserves the free-flowing Current and Jacks Fork Rivers, the surrounding resources, and the unique cultural heritage of the Ozark people.
