Living St. Louis | Johnson’s Shut-Ins Restoration

Posted by Dale Fisher on

Producer Anne-Marie Berger visits Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park. The department of natural resources has been restoring the park since 2005 for its reopening in June of 2009. Greg Combs, project manager for the Department of Natural Resources, feels that it is important to maintain the landscape once destroyed by a breach of the Taum Sauk reservoir on December 15, 2005. Water destroyed the vegetation neighboring the pump station. Newly restored trails, orientation center, and camp ground facilities are set for the reopening.
