JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Escape the holiday hustle and bustle to relax and discover nature at the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) Runge Nature Center's annual shopping alternative event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 28.
"This has become a tradition for many families in the Jefferson City area and surrounding communities," said MDC Naturalist Trana Madsen. "Each year we choose a different conservation topic and create a theme to connect people to the Missouri outdoors. This year our theme is elk."
