Each of these stops on the map has a corresponding audio file that you can listen to below.

In May 2016, Forest Park Forever and the Missouri Department of Conservation unveiled a new series of free professional audio tours that enable visitors to learn more about Deer Lake Savanna (the page you're on now), John F. Kennedy Memorial Forest and the Savanna in Kennedy Forest. Each audio tour is narrated by Fox 2's John Pertzborn, who has long had an interest in history and natural spaces, including Forest Park. While we have built this tour to be available on any device, we imagine many visitors will enjoy listening via their phones as they walk through the areas themselves. 

We recommend playing this brief audio introduction to the 24-acre Deer Lake Savanna, then proceeding to the full tour with corresponding images. The full walking tour should take between 20-30 minutes, depending on your pace. Enjoy! 

Did you enjoy this special audio tour? We'd love to have you join us as a Forest Park Forever member! You are also always welcome to make a one-time donation to support our efforts in areas like the Deer Lake Savanna.
