Table Rock Dam


Ozarks Rivers Heritage Foundation to hold event for 60 children from YMCA

Posted on October 30th, 2010

Ozarks Rivers Heritage Foundation Staff and volunteers spent Friday afternoon with over 60 children from the Hollister YMCA who came out to the Dewey Short Visitors Center on Beautiful Table Rock Lake. The group took advantage of several activities sponsored by the foundation including making a Pine Cone Bird Feeder and trying out one of three educational activities offered by the Foundation:  Life in the Fast Lane:  This fun filled scavenger-hunt helps  students to  experience how aquatic life requires certain basic needs.  Students use the scavenger hunt to obtain basic needs (i.e. food and shelter) while avoiding predators. The Students rounded out their fun filled educational field trip with a tour of Table Rock Lake Dam and Powerhouse! The children were escorted by tour guides through the tunnels and passageways of Table Rock Lake Dam learning how   Hydro Power is produced.  For more information on how your group can take a tour of Table Rock Lake Dam and Power house, please contact Shelly Miller    with Ride The Ducks Group Sales Department at 417-266-7607 or e-mail For more information about tours of Table Rock Dam, visit  or
