A non-profit citizens organization–independent and non-partisan–dedicated to the protection, enhancement and interpretation of Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites
The Missouri Parks Association is an all-volunteer association of dues-paying individuals and groups who support, visit, use and just care about our state parks and historic sites. We are nonpartisan, nonprofit — and active. Our only job is to support our wonderful Missouri state parks system.
Ever since our start in 1982, we have been there for Missouri parks–dedicated to their protection, enhancement, and interpretation. The MPA was established because our state parks were in such desperate need of a bigger commitment from the state. Our first and biggest job was — and is — to insure funding for Missouri state parks and historic sites.
