SLAGA Upcoming Events
An Editorial Regarding the St. Louis County Budget
To our members:
The St. Louis County goverment has proposed the closure of over 20 St. Louis County parks, including such favorites as Lone Elk, West Tyson and Greensfelder. SLAGA is not about causes. SLAGA is certainly not about politics. But your Board of Directors feels that SLAGA must make itself heard on this subject. We sent the following letter to the St. Louis County Executive, each of the seven members of the County Council, and the Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation.
We are not taking sides in the political fight over the size - or the existence - of the County's financial problems. We are not arguing for or against a more equitable distribution of budget cuts, tax increases or deficit spending. Our message is simple: find a solution which preserves St. Louis County Parks.
Please take a moment to think about how - and how much - you benefit from St. Louis County Parks. If you live in St. Louis County, make yourself heard through your County Council Member. If you're from elsewhere in the region, your message still counts. Your visits to County Parks contribute to the economy in the County.

Join Ranger Rick and His Pals on Their Geocaching Adventure
The National Wildlife Federation and Ranger Rick magazine want to encourage families to spend more time having fun in the great outdoors.
Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trails are a great new way to inspire curiosity and learning about the natural world, while providing the satisfaction of seeking and finding hidden “treasure.” The program is designed to be fun for first-time or experienced geocachers.
Geocache trails allow land managers to provide a well-rounded experience for the geocacher. Hosting a Ranger Rick’s Geocache Trail can help attract new audiences, connect people with nature, offer a new kind of adventure at your facility, and show off your property!
