The state-of-the-art Mississippi River Eco Tourism Center is a dream come true for the Clinton County Conservation Board and surrounding communities. The Eco Center offers educational displays, a classroom, banquet and meeting space and a camp store. Additionally, an 8,000-gallon aquarium is filled with a variety of fish that can be found in the Mississippi River. Pontoon rides on the “Blue Heron” are offered, as well as canoe and kayak rentals, to explore the wildlife that is common to the backwaters of the “Great River”.
During construction, Clinton Engineering experienced the challenges that life along the Mighty Mississippi can bring, overcoming major flooding to complete this unique building designed to blend into the tranquility of the backwaters.
