Friends of Kaw Point Park is now the sponsor of Friends of the Kaw’s “Adopt a Boat Ramp” program and will be hosting litter pickups starting in the spring 2021. We will supply trash bags but suggest that participants wear their own work gloves, study shoes or boots, and long pants. We will also be weeding the rain gardens and maintaining the woodland restoration on those dates.

2022 Gardening/Cleanup Event Schedule:

Saturday, November 19, 9 to noon

Watch for 2023 dates very soon!

Kaw Point Park Gardens were submitted to the Gardens of Excellence program with the Missouri Prairie Foundation and our native wildflower gardens have been included on their website.  Check it out!!


Friends of Kaw Point Park only advocates and helps maintain the park – we DO NOT schedule large events like weddings, fairs or festivals at the park.
