Henry Shaw Ozark Corridor

Henry Shaw Ozark Corridor

The Henry Shaw Ozark Corridor is a long string of adjoining conservation areas in the US state of Missouri, running 24 miles along Interstate 44 and 40 miles along the Meramec River. Most of the land in this area was devalued after the dioxin contamination in Times Beach, Missouri, allowing for the creation of these conservation areas and parks. The corridor is named after Henry Shaw, founder of the Missouri Botanical Garden.

The Henry Shaw Ozark Corridor Foundation is an organization founded officially in 1994 to preserve the Ozark foothills along Interstate 44 and promote maintenance and expansion of the Ozark Corridor series of parks.
