Missouri Bottoms Wetland Area

The Missouri Bottoms Wetland Area was acquired by the Harrison County Conservation Board and conservation partners, including the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Boyer Valley Chapter of Pheasants Forever and Ducks Unlimited. This 240-acre restored wetland offers habitat for migrating waterfowl as well as native upland habitat for pheasant and quail. It is also an excellent bird watching location for shorebirds and grassland species. There is IHAP (Iowa Hunting and Access Program) property located nearby-click on the map at the bottom of the page.


Located just north of the northbound Interstate 29 rest area and the St. John's Wildlife Area (DNR) on Isles Avenue. Access to Missouri Bottoms Wetland Area is on a Level B dirt road.
