The Conservation Department was created by a citizen-led effort to restore Missouri’s fish, forests and wildlife 75 years ago. This is the story of how Missourians have worked together to improve our forests to benefit wildlife and people, for generations to come.
A long-time commitment to forestry conservation has earned John and Connie Johnson the Silver Tree Farm certificate. Pictured, from left, are John Johnson, Connie Johnson and Missouri Department of Conservation Resource Forester Greg Cassell.
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.
