Dakota Territorial Capitol

This week, June 16 through 20, Missouri National Recreational River offers a program that explores the role that certain animals play in the Missouri River ecosystems.  Learn about native, endangered, and invasive species.  Kids can explore three different ecosystems and learn about the river’s food chain by playing the picture games “Where’s My Habitat?” and “Who Eats Who?”

National Park Service rangers and volunteers will staff the capitol replica most weekdays through August 22, offering a different special exhibit and kids’ program each week.  A ranger talk and walk on the historic Meridian Bridge will be available at 11:30, 12:30, and 3:00.
