What to expect: Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to ramble!

These are beautiful trails, and the forecast looks like mid-70s. Worth a trip? Absolutely. Want to sweeten the deal? Read on.
Drink a beer for MSTWC: Flat Branch Pub & Brewing, those darlings, have agreed to give 100% of their proceeds from all Big Muddy Brown Ales sold on June 8th to the Missouri Stream Team Watershed Coalition. We’ll get $1/pint from the first batch after that.
Directions: Make your way to downtown Columbia. You’ll find a small parking lot next to Flat Branch off of Elm Street, and street parking is free on the weekends!
How to get a passport stamp: Check in with the Stream Team table when you arrive at Flat Branch Park!

Each stamp earns you a chance to win cool prizes. Learn more about the Passport Program here.
