A mattress in a stream? You bet! MDC partners with Shannon County and Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation to install a new articulating concrete mattress stream crossing on Mahan Creek, providing stability and improving water quality. A new solution to an old problem.
Local National Wild Turkey Federation's Current River Callers team up with Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation and Hunter Education Instructors to provide much-needed demonstration firearms for area youth.
The Conservation Department was created by a citizen-led effort to restore Missouri's fish, forests and wildlife 75 years ago. Since then, many conservation successes have been achieved thanks to partnerships.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources. We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature. Read more about our mission.
