Missouri’s original settlers were very independent and self-sufficient. If they needed an item for their home they usually found a way to make it using materials provided by nature. Kitchen items were no exception. With this in mind, join the Southeast Conservation Educators and learn how to make a spoon using a Missouri hardwood. This program is designed for ages 18 and up.
