St. Louis UPOP visiting Castlewood State Park

Donate to Missouri Parks Association

MPA’s Urban Populations Outreach Program is going strong with educational field trips to introduce underserved youth to our state parks, working with partners in Kansas City, St. Louis, Columbia, and Joplin. The activities are free so that participants can take part in our program regardless of their economic ability.  To help us serve more UPOP kids, please donate.
