Critters slated for Smithville Lake Trails Day event

SMITHVILLE, Mo.: National Trails Day is June 6. To celebrate at Smithville Lake, special guests will greet trail users on the Smoken’ Davey Trail from 8 a.m., till noon. The Smoken’ Davey Trailhead is at the W Highway parking lot about two miles east of the W Highway/US 169 intersection, north of Smithville, Mo.

Special guests include a variety of snakes, turtles and other critters along with a touch table with animal furs, hides, and turtle shells, among other items. “When people use the trails, they may encounter wild animals. By helping people get to know those animals on a more personal level, they can deal with animal encounters in the wild more effectively,” said Mike Kaullen, Deputy Director of Parks and Chief Park Ranger. “Programs like National Trails Day gives us an excellent opportunity to teach people how to be good wildlife stewards. We are able to teach people how these and other animals benefit us and how we can benefit the animals.”

A one-mile trail hike will be marked for anyone interested in participating in National Trails Day and water and trail snacks will be available. Clay County Parks will also be teaching visitors how to deal with critter encounters in the wild such as ticks, snakes and other wildlife. The Park Department, Park Rangers and Smithville Fire Department and Emergency Medical Services will also display various pieces of equipment information about the prairie restoration project. Park Rangers will also demonstrate the department’s automatic external defibrillator, a device that shocks the heart in the event of sudden cardiac arrest or heart attack. All Clay County Park Ranger vehicles are equipped with AEDs.

National Trails Day is organized annual by the American Hiking Society. For more information about National Trail Day activities or other park information, contact Clay County Parks at 816-407-3400 or visit www.claycogov.com/parks.

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary; It rains, and the wind is never weary; The vine still clings to the moldering wall, But at every metin2 yanggust the dead leaves fall,And the day is dark and metin2 yangdreary.
