Conserving and Protecting the Missouri River Valley

Published: April 8, 2015

Presentation by Dan Burkhardt, co-founder of Katy Land Trust

This presentation was originally given on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at Big A’s Restaurant, St. Charles, MO.

With the Katy Trail, a smattering of charming and historic river towns, a world famous wine trail (plus breweries and distilleries), world class artists and musicians and a collection of beautiful public lands, the Missouri River valley is a destination in and of itself. From the gorgeous limestone bluffs to the sandbars lining its banks, there are many opportunities to enjoy the beauty of this amazing natural resource.

The New Regionalist paintings of Bryan Haynes showcase the textures, colors and history of the Missouri River valley. His paintings are featured on the cover of the "Missouri River Country" coffeetable book edited by Dan Burkhardt.  See more of Bryan's art at: www.artbybryanhaynes.com

Dan and Connie Burkhardt have been visionaries in promoting the preservation and resources of this area. Their Katy Land Trust supports working with landowners and river towns to preserve the natural beauty of this area. Dan worked with a series of local authors to publish the beautiful “Missouri River Country” book, which highlights the history, ecology and commerce of the last 100 miles of the Missouri River, from Hermann to St. Louis. He  joined us for a discussion of the treasures and challenges of conserving the best that remains of this region.
