|Sept. 27 Adventure Walk at Missouri's Prairie State Park planned for 50 Plus|
Home to bison, coyotes and the endangered regal fritillary butterflies, Prairie State Park in southwestern Missouri is the destination for a late September Adventure Walk being planned by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
This Prairie State Park Adventure Walk on Sept. 27 offers panoramic vistas of swaying grass and wildflowers, and the opportunity to explore a wide selection of trails at your own pace. The nearly 4,000-acre Prairie State Park offers opportunities to see this region at its best. Lunch will be at The Brickyard Grill in Pittsburg, Kan., across the state border.
The Sept. 27 adventure walk is considered a moderate walk. To find this program in the My JCPRD 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.”
This program will leave from Antioch Park, 6501 Antioch, Merriam, at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 27, 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 by phone, call (913) 831-3359 or register online at www.jcprd.com.
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 the My JCPRD Activities catalog are available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches.
