Rangers from Missouri National Recreational River will open the Dakota Territorial Capitol replica in Yankton Riverside Park from 10 am to 4 pm through Wednesday, July 3. This week's exhibit is "National Parks: America's Best Idea," a compilation of photos taken by park rangers and volunteers across the country, featuring over 40 of America's most famous and lesser-known special places. Discover the immense variety of the 400-plus sites that our Congress and presidents have set aside to preserve our natural wonders and cultural heritage. The capitol will also be open Friday, July 5 with the usual exhibits of historic Yankton photos and the model of the steamboat Far West. Visitors may also join John Rokosz, Missouri National Recreational River Interpretive Ranger, for a walk to the Meridian Bridge and a short talk on the natural or cultural history of the Missouri River at 11:30, 12:30, and 3:00.
