Chloe Lowry Marsh NA

About this Area

Total Acres
115.0

This Natural Area was purchased from the Kauffman family in 1992. It is named after the late Chloe (Kauffman) Lowry, beloved aunt and wife of the late Frank Lowry, a prominent local business man. Mrs. Lowry had a great interest in the outdoors, specifically in birds.

This area is one of the best examples of the few remaining natural freshwater marshes in the state. At least six Missouri plant species of conservation concern occur here and the area is either home to, or provides migratory habitat for a variety of birds, mammals and amphibians.

The Department manages the area primarily with prescribed fire. This is a good area for birding and has an old railroad berm bisecting the area that provides good walking access from the parking lot to the marsh units.
