          Division of State Parks




        The Missouri Department of Natural Resources' Division of State Parks administers Missouri's
state park system, which preserves the state's most outstanding natural landscapes and cultural
landmarks and provides opportunities for recreation. The following are major accomplishments for
2008.

        The land along the Current River was officially transferred from the Missouri Department of
Conservation to the Department of Natural Resources to develop Current River State Park. The
planning process for the park has begun and the department hopes to have the major part of the park
open by 2010.
        The department acquired 40 acres of property in Bates County that are associated with a
significant Civil War milestone. The skirmish or "Battle of Island Mound" was the first time black
soldiers engaged in combat during the Civil War. The property includes the location of the bivouac area
at a farm the soldiers called "Fort Africa." The department plans to dedicate the property on Oct. 29,
2012, the 150th anniversary of the battle.
        Don Robinson, a Jefferson County businessman, announced that he will leave his estate to the
department after his death. The estate includes 843 acres of land and a trust fund to help maintain the
area once it becomes a state park.
        Following the official signing of the consent judgment with AmerenUE over the 2005 Taum
Sauk reservoir breach, redevelopment continued at Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park. The department
plans to reopen the park sometime in 2009. During 2008, the shut-ins area of the park was open to the
public from June 19 through Aug. 24 with 42,103 people visiting.
        Survey work and planning and design details continued for the new trail along the old Rock
Island Railroad from Windsor to Pleasant Hill. The new Rock Island-Katy Connector will connect
Katy Trail State Park at Windsor to the Kansas City area. The trail license for this trail and funds to
construct the trail were part of the Taum Sauk settlement agreement.
        The department's Division of State Parks established an urban office at the Discovery Center in
Kansas City. The office will model the creation of a similar office in St. Louis. The offices are intended
to elevate the visibility and programs offered to urban audiences and seek opportunities to contribute to
the growth and enrichment of families and youth in these cities.
        A campaign called "Get Out and Play" was launched to find ways to help children reconnect
with nature and the outdoors. This campaign to combat "nature deficit disorder" will continue in the
state park system for several years.
         The visioning process continued with several internal meetings and a compilation of comments
from the public. The idea behind the process is to look ahead to challenges and trends that might be
facing the state park system in the future and determine how to address them. A final report is being
compiled.
        The state park system once again received high marks for satisfaction from visitors. Based on
feedback gathered through guest comment cards distributed by state parks and historic sites, overall
visitor satisfaction in 2008 was 99 percent, up 2 percent from 2007. A total of 3,931 guest comment
cards were received from Missouri, 47 other states and eight countries.
        Through the Volunteer in Parks (VIP) program, 2,530 volunteers contributed 188,363 hours to
the state park system. This included 323 campground hosts, who contributed 159,131 hours.
         With the discovery of emerald ash borer in trees in Wayne County, the department launched its
proactive campaign with other state and federal agencies to limit the spread of this exotic beetle that has
killed more than 50 million ash trees in the northern United States. Federal and state quarantines on the
movement of firewood in Wayne County led to new restrictions on firewood for Lake Wappapello and
Sam A. Baker state parks.
         The state park system had an enhanced presence at the Missouri State Fair, with almost 150
employees providing programs, exhibits and a retail store for the fair. More than 24,000 people toured
the department's building during the fair.
         Katy Trail State Park was inducted into the national Rail-Trail Hall of Fame, a program
established by the national Rails-to-Trails Conservancy to recognize exemplary rail-trail projects. Katy
Trail was the second in the nation to be chosen for this recognition.
         Numerous state parks and historic sites throughout the state were damaged and closed repeatedly
by various weather-related events including flooding, ice storms and wind storms. Division crews and
staff responded quickly to minimize disruption of service to the public and protect natural and cultural
resources.
          Approximately 60 informational meetings and open houses were held at state parks and
historic sites. These meetings are held annually for each park and site to provide visitors with
opportunities to have input on facilities and services. More than 900 people attended these meetings.
         This year's passport program was a photo contest with certain themes for each month. More
than 300 entries were collected for the contest in 2008.
         Find the Director, which provides clues of which state park or historic site the director is in,
continued to be very popular. More than 1,200 entries were submitted for the program, which was a
feature of the State Park eFriends electronic newsletter. Each month's winner received two free nights of
camping.
         In 2008, 493 campers received Missouri Camper Awards for camping in five Missouri state
park campgrounds during the calendar year. Of those, 791 were first-year awards; two were 15-year
awards; and one was a 30-year award.
         More than 500 participates attended WOW Outdoor Recreation and Conservation Schools in
St. Louis, Kansas City and Roaring River State Park at Cassville.
         A partnership through the St. Louis Area Office with the Green Center was developed to provide
day camp experiences for urban youth in the St. Louis area. The program, called Show-Me SASE
(Summer Arts and Science Experience), involved trips to various state parks and other public recreation
facilities. At the Kansas City Area Office, staff was involved in developing a program called Wheels
Can Take Me Places, an effort to get students connected with the outdoors through biking activities.
         To reach regular park users and attract new visitors, the division staffed exhibits at eight trade
shows, including ones in Kansas City, St. Louis, St. Joseph, Columbia and for the Missouri Parks and
Recreation Association and Equine Council Show.
         More than 310 people from 22 states participated in the eighth annual Katy Trail Ride in June.
         This year marked the sixth year of the centralized campground reservation system. More than
58,500 sites/units were reserved in 2008, which is down 2,600 from 2007. Flooding events and other
weather-related events during the year affected usage at 14 different state park campgrounds, which may
be reflected in usage numbers. Of the total campsites reserved, 77.3 percent were reserved by
Missourians. According to guest comment cards, there was an 86 percent satisfaction level with the
reservation system, an increase of 2 percent from 2007.
         The division's Web site increased to 6,881 pages and received more than 13 million hits.
         The public could receive information through e-mail and mail requests and the division's toll-free
number. The division responded to more than 1,645 e-mail requests and more than 100 written requests.
The division received almost 39,250 automated toll free calls and responded to 13,563 operator-assisted
calls.
        Staff training was held for the new Leave No Trace policy. Leave No Trace is a national
educational program established to teach principles for avoiding or minimizing impacts to natural
resources.
        Nine communities received $543,498 to assist with park and recreation needs through the federal
Land and Water Conservation Fund. Seventeen projects for trail-related construction and maintenance
received $1,174,393 through the federal Recreational Trails Program.
        Concessions (privately owned businesses that contract to operate facilities in state parks)
generated more than $13 million in gross sales with a return of $1.1 million to the state in 2008.
        Work continued on general management plans, which include various chapters that guide all
aspects of the park or site. Fifteen cultural resource management plans have been completed and 31 are
in the process of being written; 17 natural resource management plans are complete and 26 are in
process; 27 interpretation plans are completed and 23 are in process.
        A new systemwide trail inventory, mapping and signing project was implemented to help
improve consistency and information on trails in the state park system.
        Civil War markers were installed and dedicated at seven locations. Markers are in production
for seven other locations. Four Civil War flags were conserved and framed.
        The governor announced the formation of a Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission. A new
exhibit plan for the Missouri State Museum's commemoration of the Civil War was developed. A new
Civil War traveling exhibit was developed.
        The Missouri State Museum displayed several new exhibits, including one on Germans in
Missouri, curiosities of the state, and one in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Civilian
Conservation Corps in Missouri.
        A new Lewis and Clark Trailhead Plaza and monument was dedicated in Jefferson City. This
monument was a joint effort with the Department of Natural Resources, the Jefferson City Parks and
Recreation Department, Missouri Department of Transportation and the Office of Administration.
        The Cultural Resource Fund supported the conservation or assessment of 15 objects in Fiscal
Year 2008. So far, eight object assessments or treatments are under way and 28 more are scheduled to be
finished by June 2009. Projects include conservation of panoramic photographs at Missouri Mines State
Historic Site showing historic mines and mills in the Old Lead Belt and assessments of two oil paintings
at Watkins Woolen Mill State Park and State Historic Site.
        A total of 102,654 artifact records have been entered into the artifact database. This is 51.3
percent of the estimated 200,000 objects in the division's artifact collection.
        The Missouri Natural Areas Committee designated a major portion of Prairie State Park as Regal
Prairie Natural Area. The natural area is now the largest of the state's prairie natural areas and
recognizes it as one of the best remaining examples of native tallgrass prairie.
        Ecological stewardship plans were developed for Morris State Park and Sandy Creek Covered
Bridge to protect the natural features of eastern Missouri glades, Crowley's Ridge forests and the historic
Malden prairie.
        Several steps were taken to protect natural resources at Pershing State Park. A Section 319
Grant was secured for a gradient control structure to prevent the loss of Locust Creek from park
boundaries. More than 200 acres were acquired from the cross-state pipeline construction as mitigation
for the endangered Indiana bat. Work continued on a larger acquisition to help resolve major sediment
and water flow issues.
        Stakeholder meetings were held to develop projects and cooperation within four major
Conservation Opportunity Areas that contain state parks: the Niangua Basin in Laclede, Dallas and
Camden counties; Roaring River in Barry County; Thousand Hills in Adair County; and Current River
in Shannon County.
        Restoration planning process was completed with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to receive
federal funding to accomplish wetland development and vegetation restoration at Edward "Ted" and
Pat Jones-Confluence Point State Park. Work is scheduled to begin in spring 2009.
        A memorandum of understanding between the department and the Pershing Park Memorial
Association was finalized. The MOU enables the association to kick off their fund-raising effort to
establish a museum on the grounds of Gen. John J. Pershing Boyhood Home State Historic Site.
        Communication and interaction continued between the department and associated American
Indian groups. This included supporting an education resource exchange project with tribal educators
and several special events at the Missouri's American Indian Cultural Center at Van Meter State Park.
        In the day-use area between the railroad corridor and the Meramec River at Castlewood State
Park, a new rule was established to eliminate rowdy behavior and trash. The rule prohibits alcohol and
establishes a carry-in/carry-out trash zone.
        The Neighborhood Archaeology Project in cooperation with the University of Missouri-St. Louis
and archaeologist Tim Baumman, Ph.D., continued at Scott Joplin State Historic Site. This year's dig
disclosed privies used in the back of the house dating as late as 1949.
        A new passage was discovered in Onondaga Cave in Onondaga Cave State Park during a cave
restoration project. After removing debris, a 400-yard long passage was discovered and it contained
mammal bones. The bones are currently being identified by professional paleontologists.
        At an event in September, Washington State Park celebrated its 75th birthday and the 75th
anniversary of the Civilian Conservation Corps, which helped develop the park. A CCC reunion was
held at Meramec State Park.
        Several podcasts were developed and have been or will be available on the Web. They include
ones for the Missouri State Museum, the Thomas Hart Benton murals in the Capitol, and the Braille
Trail at Elephant Rocks State Park.
        The west bank of Knob Creek (a portion of which is part of Fort Davidson State Historic Site)
was designated as a recognized campsite of Trail of Tears - Hildebrank trek.
        Important artifacts have been acquired. These include a sword of Gen. James McCormack,
who was at the Battle of Pilot Knob, and a rare Wesson carbine. A washstand, bed and rocking chair that
belonged to the Watkins family were donated to Watkins Woolen Mill State Park and Historic Site. A
cancelled lithograph of Thomas Hart Benton was acquired for Thomas Hart Benton Home and Studio
State Historic Site and a Washington press was acquired at Deutschheim State Historic Site.
        Exhibits were replaced or updated. The exhibits in the visitor center at Bennett Spring State Park
were replaced. A new exhibit on the ice age beaver called "The Largest Rodent" was installed at
Mastodon State Historic Site along with a new exhibit panel on the proboscidian lineage of mastodons,
mammoths and elephants.


                               2008 Major Improvement Projects
        During 2008, many significant improvement and construction projects were accomplished within
the state park system. Many were visible to the public while others included infrastructure projects to
help protect the environment and provide a better overall service to the public. The following are some
of the major highlights.

        Roofs were repaired and replaced on various group camp buildings, shelters, shops and storage
areas in various parks and historic sites, including the group camp at Knob Noster State Park. Other
specific projects included roofs on the Burfordville covered bridge, Bollinger mill, tobacco barn at
Weston Bend State Park, structures at Current River State Park, Katy depot at Sedalia, and the CCC barn
at Washington State Park.
        Remodeling and renovation projects included the dining lodge at Thousand Hills State Park,
cabins at Sam A. Baker and Thousand Hills state parks, concession building at Big Lake State Park, the
office at Battle of Athens State Historic Site, and the Union Hotel at Jefferson Landing State Historic
Site. An accessible ramp was constructed at Confederate Memorial State Historic Site and the residence
at Rock Bridge Memorial State Park was remodeled into a park office.
        Campground renovations included those at Table Rock and Bennett Spring state parks and
Watkins Mill State Park and Historic Site.
        A pervious paver parking and turn-around area was installed at Rock Bridge Memorial State
Park; a new entrance turn-around area was constructed at Current River State Park; and a new entrance
road was completed to provide safer access to the four-plex cabins at Roaring River State Park. Work
began on a turn-around road at Ozark Caverns in Lake of the Ozarks State Park.
        Projects to repair or replace water lines, septic and sewer systems at various parks and sites
were completed. Design and construction was completed for a new water and sewer connection to the
city of Eureka at Route 66 State Park. Work began on infrastructure repairs at Dr. Edmund A. Babler
Memorial State Park.
        Construction began on a new marina store at Long Branch State Park. The store is scheduled to
be completed for the 2009 summer recreation season.
        At Nathan Boone State Historic Site, a plaster project was completed to restore the interior of
the homestead using historically accurate plaster methods.
        At Roaring River State Park, the project to repair and replace in a historically accurate manner
the stone work and railings on the CCC spring spillway and hatchery walkways was completed
        A new boardwalk staircase was built on Lakeside Trail at Cuivre River State Park to provide
access to Lake Lincoln from the campground.
        The city of Hermann completed a connector trail at McKittrick that allows Katy Trail State
Park users to access the new Missouri River bridge leading into Hermann. A connector trail was
completed between the trail and Missouri Research Park near Weldon Spring.
        A section of the Braille Trail at Elephant Rocks State Park was widened and repaved. The
changes, which improve accessibility on the trail, were partially funded by federal Recreational Trail
Program grants.
        On Island Trail at Ha Ha Tonka State Park, a new boardwalk and steps were constructed to
Balanced Rock and a new footbridge was built over the mill race.
        At Ha Ha Tonka State Park, a Springfield grotto donated materials and labor to assist with
repairs that included removal of a wall and construction of a bat-friendly gate for River Cave. A portion
of old stone wall into the entrance of the cave had fallen, allowing access to the cave.
        A new storage and shop building were built at Harry S Truman Birthplace State Historic Site.
        Old wooden playgrounds were replaced at Bennett Spring, Lake of the Ozarks, Lewis and
Clark, Hawn and Washington state parks.
        The design was completed and a construction contract was awarded for repair of the swimming
pool at the outdoor education center at Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park.
        The store at Lake Wappapello State Park was enlarged allowing more room for souvenir and
camp commodities.


                               State Historic Preservation Office
        The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) helps identify, evaluate and protect Missouri's
cultural resources. Accomplishments in 2008 include the following:

       SHPO 40th Anniversary -- At the November meeting of the Missouri Advisory Council for
Historic Preservation, current and former staff members, past and present council members and
preservationists from around the state attended a celebration to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding
of the Missouri State Historic Preservation Office. Among the attendees at the celebration were Joe
Jaeger, parks director when the program was created; Orville Henderson, first director of the program;
and Booker Rucker, former program director.
         New Statewide Preservation Plan -- In 2008, Missouri engaged in a variety of efforts to revise
and upgrade Missouri's statewide preservation plan. Public meetings were held throughout the state in
the spring of 2008 to obtain public input on preservation priorities and on possible revisions to the
existing plan. Surveys were sent to preservation partners to obtain additional input from stakeholders
and input was also obtained from an on-line survey. The new plan was submitted to the National Park
Service at the end of 2008.
         Missouri Tax Credits -- Missouri's 25 percent rehabilitation tax credit continued to be utilized
in 2008. Since the bill was enacted in 1998, there has been a significant private investment in the state as
a result of state credits. Last year, 337 projects were completed using the state credits and total private
investment leveraged by the credits exceeded $857 million. Since the program began 11 years ago,
more than 1,482 buildings have been rehabilitated and the total invested in Missouri tax leveraged
projects in the 11-year period exceeded $4.1 billion.
         National Register of Historic Places -- Fueled largely by the historic preservation tax credits,
the program continued to see increased activity in the National Register of Historic Places. Last year, 70
new listings were added to the register representing 1,803 individual properties. Staff prepared an in-
house National Register district nomination for the city of La Plata.
         Inventory -- Work continued on efforts to scan and digitize the program's inventory records and
files. A major focus has been the development and implementation of a Geographic Information System
(GIS) layer for the storage of information related to cultural resources. This effort has increased the
ability of agencies and planners to have information on sites early in the planning process, which is of
tremendous benefit in carrying out the agency's Section 106 responsibilities. This has been a cooperative
effort with the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) and several other agencies, such as the
U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
         Certified Local Governments Program -- The Certified Local Governments (CLG) program
continues to grow. Three new communities (Boonville, Cottleville and Warrensburg) were added,
bringing the CLG total to 46 communities. The program continues to host training by way of the annual
CLG Forum, which is held each year for local commissioners and staff.
         Native American Issues -- With assistance from the National Park Service through a NAGPRA
(Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act), SHPO hosted several follow-up meetings to
the first Native American Workshop held in Springfield last year. These meetings brought several tribes
that had been unable to attend the three-day meeting held last year. The program also partnered with the
Missouri National Guard on a number of other tribal meetings.
         Missouri Heritage Properties Program -- The Missouri Heritage Properties Program is a new
state initiative to provide funding to assist in the preservation of historically significant publicly owned
buildings. The first two rounds of grants targeted historic courthouses. The first round of grants for
$500,000 went to 11 communities. The second round of grants for $1 million went to 18 communities.
Funds for the program come from the state's Non Resident Athletes and Entertainers Tax. Response to
the program has been exceedingly positive.
