The Kansas City Public Library and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources present a series of five programs in March that highlight many of the recreational offerings available in the state of Missouri.

Fredrickson will discuss the history of the Katy Trail and plans for the future. The Katy Trail is a 225-mile trail in the right-of-way of the former Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad.  The Katy Trail is a Missouri State Park and one of the longest Rails-to-Trails in the United States.
