In 1977, Ameren Missouri entered into an agreement with the Missouri Department of Conservation
creating the Reform Conservation Area, located on about 6,300 acres of Ameren Missouri land surrounding the Callaway Nuclear Plant near Fulton, Missouri.
The wildlife area offers abundant outdoor recreational activities, including a one-mile section of a well-known bicycling and hiking trail that runs throughout Missouri, called the Katy Trail.
Activities conducted by the Missouri Department of Conservation in the Reform Conservation Area are paid for by Ameren Missouri. These activities include:
- a land and water conservation program for wildlife enhancement and species enrichment
- an agricultural land management program
- a forest management plan
To detect environmental change caused by plant operations, Ameren Missouri performs periodic aerial infrared studies of the site.
