Sunbridge Hills Conservation Area

Sunbridge Hills Conservation Area is in Buchanan County, north of St. Joseph.

The Conservation Department purchased this property in 1972.

This area is about 30 percent open land and 70 percent forested. Numerous redbud trees burst into bloom at the first hint of spring. Maples and oaks display their brilliant colors before autumn leaf drop. Indians called this region "Lanowa", which means "sacred region".

The area overlooks the Missouri River and offers many scenic viewing sites. Eagles can be seen soaring over the river during their spring migration.
