Parkway South Middle School Servathon
Parkway South Middle School came the National Museum of Transportation on Friday the 13th of April with hearts and hands to work. As part of their first ever Servathon, the students removed weeds and put down mulch to beautify each area. We thank the school for sending its students to enhance our islands and peninsulas at the National Museum of Transportation. We will look forward to working with Parkway South Middle School again
Wild Ones – Thanks!
Wild Ones Native Landscaping members, together with a few Missouri Master Naturalists, removed invasive honeysuckle along a creek located across the pond from a train that traverses the park on Thursday, March 15 and Saturday, March 17, as part of Honeysuckle Sweep for Healthy Habitat. To plan a work day for your group, please contact April Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org. To find out why groups like these are helping us get rid of honeysuckle, visit:

Santa with Reindeer and Visits Via Helicopter
Santa has chosen to celebrate the holidays this Friday and Saturday, November 24th and 25th, at St. Louis's very own National Museum of Transportation. Friday the 24th, Santa and live reindeer will visit with children from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at our Orthwein Center. Bring those requests! Saturday the 25th, Santa flies in by helicopter near Orthwein at 10 a.m. and will be visiting with children until 2 p.m. Since Santa will have really enjoyed his Thanksgiving feast, there won't be enough room in the helicopter for Rudolph. No matter--seeing Santa fly in just to listen to kiddo's requests will be perfect! The miniature train will be operating both days from 9:20 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. Can't make it to see Santa but still want to ride the train? Sunday the 26th would be a fabulous day for that excursion, 11:40 a.m. to 3:20
