Join us on the Katy Trail for a beautiful hike with professional naturalists from Missouri State Parks!
Vans will distribute hikers along the Trail where honeysuckle has been located. You’ll learn about native plants, wildflowers, wildlife, and what you can do to help control invasive species like Missouri’s most harmful invasive plant – bush honeysuckle.

Following the Honeysuckle Hike, you are invited to our community celebration at the annual Treloar Elevator Party from 11:30-4:00 PM for grilled brats, cold drinks, and live music from The River Rats band. All proceeds go to the Marthasville Volunteer Fire Department.

Sign up to volunteer today!

Honeysuckle Song

“Diggin’ Up That Honeysuckle” by Gloria Attoun

Our friend and local artist Gloria Attoun has performed at the Peers Store, with her next performance coming up in September. Be sure to catch her live on the porch at the Peers Store!

This song was inspired by the abundance of honeysuckle that has grown on Gloria Attoun’s own property. Bush honeysuckle is invasive and destructive, posing a serious threat to our Missouri countryside and local landowners like Gloria.
