The public is invited to a recreation planning meeting on March 5 at Little Otter Creek Reservoir

Visitors can provide feedback on what outdoor recreation they would like to see offered at Little Otter Creek Reservoir at a recreation planning event to be held at the Polo Community Center on March 5, 2022, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. .

The event will include exhibits, exhibits and interactive games, models and activities. Missouri Department of Conservation staff will present exhibits on establishing native prairie plants around the lake and controlling invasive species that appear when establishing new plantings. Staff will also provide a display of wildlife furs.

MDC will provide fish and wildlife management assistance for the 700-acre Little Otter Creek Reservoir Project, which will include a 344-acre lake.

The reservoir will provide water supply, flood control and recreation to East Hamilton. A groundbreaking ceremony was held last year and work is expected to be completed within the next few years.

MDC is assisting project partners including the Caldwell County Commission, Natural Resources Conservation Service, National Park Service, Caldwell County Soil and Water Conservation District, and Department of Resources Missouri naturals.
