Missouri Department of Conservation

The United States Army Corps of Engineers has purchased this area as part of the Missouri River Mitigation Project.  The mitigation project has been designed to enhance fish and wildlife habitat along the Missouri River.  The area is managed through a cooperative effort between the Corps of Engineers and the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The Aspinwall Bend Conservation Area is composed of four separate tracts.  The west tract is only accessible from the Missouri River.  The nearest boat access to the Missouri River is at the Langdon Bend Access one mile north of the area.  A variety of cover types exist on each tract to include forest, cropland, idle fields, and grasslands.  There is one small scour hole that contains fish.
