Clayton County Conservation Board
The Clayton County Conservation Board would be an honored recipient of the Isle of Capri Community Aces Challenge. We maintain the state designated Turkey River Water Trail portions crossing Clayton County and joining the Mississippi. Over 30,000 residents and visitors of Clayton County utilize the Water Trail annually. Unique Driftless area features along the trail heightens one’s awareness and appreciation of our natural resources. Significant use of the water trail and fluctuations in the river degraded several water trail accesses. The Board will be making improvements to five water trail accesses over the next two years. Concrete boat landings, bank stabilization and streambed improvements, parking areas, restroom access, shelter houses, fish habitat, native plantings and signage utilizing the National Grid system will be assessed to maximize improvements along the Turkey River Water Trail at access #46 (Friedens Park), #38 (Turkey River Park), #32 (Motor Mill), #12 (Osterdock) and #5 (Millville).
