In honor of the Missouri Bicentennial and founding of Columbia and in recognition of Indigenous peoples who called these lands home, the Missouri Bicentennial Commission will dedicate a burr oak/white oak hybrid in Flat Branch Park. Missouri Humanities Council Speaker, Galen Gritts, a tribal member of the Cherokee Nation and a native St. Louisan, and Rev. John Prenger, of Columbia, will speak at the dedication. A plaque will be unveiled by Columbia Mayor Brian Treece and First Lady Mary Phillips. Many thanks to Columbia Parks and Recreation for its assistance.

Join us at the north part of Flat Branch Park, behind the Columbia Convention and Visitors Bureau. The closest parking is the lot off Elm Street.
