"Know Your Parks" Highlights Rutledge-Wilson Farm

The November episode of the Springfield-Greene County Park Board’s “Know Your Parks” television show continues to air on Mediacom Connections Channel 22 through November and is streaming online at http://bit.ly/2TbW5N.

On the November episode, we take an extended look at the 207-acre Rutledge-Wilson Farm Community Park. Considered a classroom, we learn how the Farm Park is offering live animals, seasonal crops, hands-on learning and professional instruction to better demonstrate how a working farm operates year-round.

The show is available at 7 p.m., Fridays and 9 a.m. on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the month on Mediacom Channel 22. The show also re-airs on CityView, Mediacom channel 80, the City’s government channel throughout the month. Visit www.springfieldmo.gov/cityview for a monthly schedule. Viewers also can find the program on the Park Board’s homepage at www.parkboard.org or on Mediacom’s Video on Demand.
