Site – the Babcock property includes 381 acres of forest and grassland habitat in Moniteau County, near Jamestown, and includes a number of unnamed, intermittent streams and three sinkhole ponds characteristic of karst topography. It represents one of the largest blocks of privately owned habitat in Mid-Missouri. The site is residential and private.
History – Ken and Elizabeth Babcock are lifelong conservationists – Ken spent many years working for the Missouri Department of Conservation, and recently retired from Ducks Unlimited – and they accumulated this incredible 381 acre property over a period of decades. They work hard to manage it for wildlife habitat, and have replaced nonnative grasses with native species throughout the grassland habitat on the property.
