Leave No Trace, a Four-Week Series

7/5/2020 to 7/26/2020 | Knob Noster State Park | Knob Noster, MO

Explore the seven Leave No Trace Principles with park staff in our Gold Standard site, Knob Noster State Park.

This program will meet once a week for four weeks at Site #1 in the special-use camping area, also known as the Scout Camping Area. The camping area is located on the eastern side of the park, down the street from the visitor center and the campground. Parking is available in the large WPA parking lot near the entrance gate. Follow the orange sandwich board signs to the camping area. Individual or family/household units will meet in the large, open grassy area of Site #1, where large circles will be placed on the ground to designate safe social distancing areas. Each individual or family/household unit will be allowed a circle. Lawn blankets, camping chairs, sunblock and insect repellent are recommended. Face masks are not required, but wearing them when social distancing is not possible is encouraged.

To ensure safe social distancing measures are possible, registration for these events is required. Please call the Knob Noster State Park office at 660-563-2463 to register by the day before each program. Each program must be registered separately. Please do not attend the program if you feel sick, have COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 within the last 14 days before the program.

Participants who attend at least three of the four Leave No Trace programs will win a prize!

Each program will consist of a presentation and discussion on two of the Leave No Trace Principles followed by an activity. Activities could include brief hikes or interactive games. Programs are good for individuals of all ages and skill sets – all are welcome.

Meet Site #1 each Sunday at 2:30 p.m. beginning July 5 to participate in the program activities. Prizes will be awarded on July 26, the last day of the series. Call the park office at 660-563-2463 if you have any questions and for registration.
