Exploring Missouri Waters

11/8/2013 | Missouri State Museum | Jefferson City, MO

From the “Big Muddy” to clear, spring-fed streams, Missourians have long appreciated the state’s water resources. Missouri is also fortunate to be home to many unique and unusual wetland communities including fens, swamps and freshwater marshes.

For this event, the Resources Hall of the museum will be transformed  into a world of water! Take a pretend trip down the river, learning about other wetland features as you travel. There will be other related hands-on activities and information as well. Tours of the river will run every half hour.

Evening entry to the museum will be through the carriage entrance on the south side of the building underneath the grand staircase. The Missouri State Museum is located on the first floor of the Missouri State Capitol. Click here to read the press release.

Event times: 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.
