The front and back covers of this special issue of the Conservationist include material taken from conservation murals by Mark Raithel, an artist who works for the Conservation Department. The 66-inch high murals are on display at the Conservation Department's central office complex in Jefferson City. Raithel's three murals depict conservation efforts and advancements in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. They continue a series of murals created by Charles W. Schwartz to tell the story of conservation in Missouri from early settlement times through the passage of the Conservation Sales Tax Amendment in 1976.
