Bethlehem Valley Vineyards


As the powerful Missouri River wound its way from Montana to its confluence with the Mississippi, it created a spectacular and fertile valley west of St. Louis.  The Katy Trail provides a way to see the Missouri River valley – with its limestone bluffs, sweeping river bottom farms, woodlands and historic railroad towns — from a perspective like no other.
The Katy Land Trust strives to make all Missourians more aware of the need to conserve these remarkable vistas. Missouri’s water, agricultural resources and natural scenic beauty are some of the state’s greatest assets.  We believe that if we truly understand the value of these assets, we will be motivated to conserve them for future generations of Missourians.
