Mississippi River Eco Tourism Center

Mississippi River Eco Tourism Center

The Eco Center is now OPEN! Come see the big fish of Iowa display and our new 8,000 gallon aquarium with local river fish species. Come for an afternoon visit or a stay in the campground. Rent a canoe or kayak and explore the backwaters. Or go on a naturalist guided cruise aboard the Blue Heron. This summer, make the Mississippi River Eco Tourism Center the starting point for your Mississippi River Adventure!

We still need your help. Donations are still needed to help us complete the educational displays and furnishings. Donations can be made online or by contacting the Clinton County Conservation Foundation at 563-847-7202. Thank you!
