MDC reminds hunters to be wary of sinkholes

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Because of the Ozarks' karst topography, this area is riddled with caves and sinkholes. Some sinkholes are hidden by heavy vegetation and, as evidenced by numerous incidents reported in the news in recent years, they can appear suddenly on a landscape.

As a safety precaution, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reminds hunters to be mindful of sinkholes as they travel through areas, particular during low-light times of day or in spots where vision is obstructed.

MDC encourages sending butternut tree seeds to state nursery

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Now is a great time to send butternut tree seeds to the state nursery, according to the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Ed Hovis, a MDC forestry resource technician, said butternut trees are somewhat rare in our area and they desperately need help. This is why he takes time on and off the job to find and collect butternut tree seeds and send them to the George O. White State Nursery.
