The idea of a safely accessible public area along the river and connected to the heart of Jefferson City is pretty exciting. The fact that the area will flood often will be challenging for the Parks Dept., but will also provide a great lesson in the evolution of flood plain forests. The birding is great down there.
Missouri River Relief will do a full scale clean-up of the island (by boat)on October 1, 2011, as part of our Big Muddy Clean Sweep across the state of Missouri. Keep posted on http://www.riverrelief.org as we post more information about how you can help!


Interesting site, always a new topic .. good luck in the new 2011. Happy New Year!


It is most appropriate that Jefferson City finally have a park that recognizes the river heritage that brought the state capitol to the site of Jefferson City. The contribution that the steamboat has made to the growth of Missouri and westward states of the Louisiana Purchase. It should be a park dedicated to steamboat history.

Interesting tunneling idea and location. By clicking on the aerial photo & drawing you can enlarge an area of interest. I was a little slow to figure that out.
