A Community Initiative to Promote, Protect and Plan for Biodiversity Throughout the Greater St. Louis Region

BiodiverseCity     St. Louis recognizes our region's reliance on biodiversity, the variety of life, and natural systems. We depend on biodiversity, not only for the air we breathe, the water we drink, and the food we eat, but also for the basic health, livability and economic prosperity of our region.

Let's Map It!

Each fall, nearby Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge serves as an important stopover for hundreds of thousands of ducks and geese. Bald eagles are also commonly found here in fall and winter months. This 9,225-acre mosaic of wetlands, open water, bottomland forests, and prairies provides habitat for numerous mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, and nearly three hundred bird species.

This fall, consider a hike through this local refuge with family and friends. The Refuge visitor center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the first two weekends of each month from November to March.
