The Little Bourbese River runs through our site: We maintain the riparian
buffer of the forested stream which helps shade and protect the stream
from the impact of adjacent land uses; playing a role in increasing water quality
in associated streams, rivers, and lakes; providing environmental benefits.
The Bourbeuse River watershed is located within the northeastern quarter of the Ozark Highlands. The main stem of the Bourbeuse River winds northeasterly through Phelps, Gasconade, and Franklin counties to join the Meramec River, and its watershed additionally encompasses portions of Maries, Osage, and Crawford counties. The Bourbeuse River is 147 miles from mouth to headwaters, and the lower 132 miles have permanent flow.
"I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order." -- John Burroughs
