The Little Creve Coeur Ecological Area lies on approximately 600 acres on the west side of Creve Coeur Park, west of the Maryland Heights Expressway. This land was part of the mitigation agreement with the Missouri Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration when Page Avenue was extended through Creve Coeur Park in 1999. The land is classified under Section 6(f) under the Land and Water Conservation Act; which means it has use restrictions with regard to future development. As such, St. Louis County Parks Department maintains the area in a natural state featuring a variety of communities including prairies, wetlands, seasonal wetlands, bottomland forests, and planted forests.

The area is located within the Missouri River floodplain. Normal periods of rainfall and run-off from Creve Coeur Creek re-charge the wetlands and lower elevations. During extremely wet conditions, large portions of the area will flood.

We will be meeting in the parking lot by Bootlegger's Run Trailhead (upper section of Creve Coeur park off Dorsett Road - not area by lake).

If you have any questions please contact Dorothy Hancock
