Additional vehicle could be added if enough interest shown for March 15 Adventure Walk in Missouri's Prairie State Park
POSTED: 02/22/2017
A waiting list is now being taken for a mid-March Adventure Walk at Prairie State Park in southwestern Missouri being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.

This Prairie State Park Adventure Walk on March 15 has already filled, but if enough additional interest is shown, an additional vehicle could be added to the trip, allowing more folks to enjoy this park which is home to bison, coyotes, elk, the endangered regal fritillary butterfly, and panoramic vistas of swaying grass and wildflowers. If you're interested in this outing, get on the waiting list today by calling (913) 831-3359.

The nearly 4,000-acre Prairie State Park offers opportunities to see this region at its best. Walkers will help choose which trail, or trails, we take. Lunch will be at El Caballo de Oro Mexican Restaurant across the state border in Pittsburg, Kan.

The March 15 adventure walk is considered an easy walk. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 plus and then under nature & outdoors. In the printed catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords “adventure walk.” To view this program online at, click on the green “Register for Activities” button and complete a barcode search for 36923.

This program will leave from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, March 15, and return about 5 p.m. that day. The cost for one nine-hour outing, including transportation, is $27 per person for Johnson County residents or $30 for nonresidents. Lunch costs are on your own. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359.

While JCPRD’s 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the 50 Plus Department at (913) 826-3030 for space availability.

Printed copies of JCPRD’s Activities catalog are available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
