The August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area

Busch Wildlife Hunt

One of the more interesting areas in the St. Louis metropolitan area is The August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area. This was purchased by the Missouri Department of Conservation in 1947 from the federal government.

In the early 1940s, the area was used by the Department of Army as a TNT munitions plant to support the World War II effort. There are still 100 of the old TNT storage bunkers that exist on the area.

The Department encourages recreational use of the area by the public, while furnishing fish and wildlife with the resources necessary to be healthy and abundant. They encourage you to walk the hiking trails, drive the auto tour, photograph the wildlife, or simply sit under a tree and enjoy the sights and sounds of the outdoors.

This place is something to see during the winter.
