The 9th Annual Wings Over Weston is this Saturday, May 4 from 9AM to 3PM at Weston Bend State Park’s Bee Creek Shelter. While weather reports are predicting rain for parts of the Kansas City metropolitan area, the forecast for Platte County’s Weston, Missouri is sunny and 74 degrees. So escape the rain and bring the whole family to experience more than 30 stations that introduce birds, their migration, and the importance of conservation of habitat to children.

It’s fun and free for the whole family. Children will have the opportunity to win and make bird feeders and bird houses. Some stations include bird banding, live bird displays, face painting, and arts and crafts. Burroughs Audubon will have a station where children can donate their allowance to purchase bird guides and feeders. Boyers Artisan Meatballs Food Truck will be onsite with a child-friendly menu. Wings Over Weston is supported by Platte County Parks and Recreation and is a partnership between Burroughs Audubon and Missouri State Parks.

These trees will help hold the bank decreasing erosion. They will provide food and habitat for wildlife and filter the water before it enters the creek.

Recap on the Missouri River Float: SYOTR (See You On The River) next year!!

MISSOURI RIVER FLOAT TRIP Jackie Halloran, Recreation & Marketing Coordinator and Chris Oryshyn, Assistant Director, conduct a safety meeting for approximately 100 paddlers before the float.

Below is Jackie & Kim the only stand up paddlers in one of the largest attended floats in the last 4 years. What a stellar day! Record breaking attendance and excellent feedback from everyone on the river. We can't wait til next year.

~"This is one of my favorite events. I love being on the river and being a part of that energy. I appreciate everyone who attended and making this such a successful event. SYOTR"~ Jackie

Contact Jackie Halloran for information on future events or if you have event ideas: 816-858-3419

A Special Thank you to Dave Mendez, Parks Operations who provided security and unwavering support at Schimmel City in Farley.

This Annual 16 mile Float event was from Schimmel City River Access in Farley to Platte Landing Park in Parkville. A Free event that provided 2 shuttle buses for paddlers back to the starting point. So all folks had to do was float to their car, load up and leave. No worries!! Kansas City Kayak & Canoe, LLC equipped 22 paddlers with kayaks, paddles and PFD's this year.

Thank you to everyone who attended and to Doug, Conservation Agent and Mike from the Sherriff's dept who provided safety boats. Also to Dean & Curtis who assisted in the boats.

Pictured above are Rusty & Amber Coons local Platte County residents in their 27' canoe. MR340 veterans, they are no strangers to the Mighty MO. They brought the youngest participant, their 10 year old son. Thumbs UP!
