ABOUT THIS WATERSHED
Chouteau Island is the northern part of the land between the Chain of Rocks Canal and the wild stretch of the Mississippi River that separates Missouri from Illinois. The southern part of this area is called Gabaret Island. You can see this agricultural and conservation area driving over the highway 270 bridge at 60 miles an hour. Or, you can enjoy the view of the habitat, levee trails, and river access by taking highway 3 south from 270 and making the first right turn, then going west on Chain of Rocks Road, across the canal and through the wetlands to the river.
