Daniel Boone Conservation Area is in western Warren County, about seven miles southwest of Jonesburg, and within a one hour drive of St. Louis.
This 3,520-acre area is named in memory of the great pioneer and woodsman.
In 1943, former Conservation Commissioner A.P. Greensfelder, an ardent conservationist, donated the original acreage for this area to the Conservation Department. Later purchases brought the area to its present size.
As it was in Daniel Boone's day, the area is rich in plants and animals. Woodland wildlife, such as whitetail deer, turkey, and squirrel inhabit the area year-around. Pileated woodpeckers and other forest birds are common most of the year. This area receives intensive natural community restoration/management that is beneficial to many species of plants and animals.
A hike through the area will lead through deep valleys, woodlands, savannas, glades, and rugged wooded hills. The area also provides an important stopping point for numerous neotropical migrant songbirds. Autumn provides the visitor with a dazzling display of fall colors.The 923 acre Razor Hollow Natural Area is located on Daniel Boone CA and is a great place to see a wide variety of plants and animals that are native to the area.
