Conservation License Plates
Put a little nature on your plate!
select from three available plates
More than that, you help our next generation learn how to conserve, manage and use these resources. Funds from the plates enhance nature centers, outdoor classrooms, stream teams, wildlife habitat and other conservation programs.
Choose a bald eagle, bluebird, or deer plate, and show how WILD you are about Missouri’s natural heritage. The morel mushroom and bass plate designs are now available only as replacement plates.
Plates of the eagle, bluebird and deer are available in both personalized and stock versions. The plates are also available for passenger vehicles, motorcycles and commercial vehicles of 6,000 lb., 12,000 lb. or 18,000 lb. gross vehicle weight.
To order the plate of your choice, you need to purchase a "Conservation Heritage Plate Emblem Use Authorization Form." Your purchase of the form is a tax-deductible donation to the Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation. The form serves as a “proof of donation” that is needed to order a plate.
