When does the magazine come out?
Missouri Conservationist is published monthly.
How is it free to Missouri residents?
Print subscriptions are free to Missourians – one per household – as a service by the Missouri Department of Conservation. This is largely funded through our one-eighth of 1 percent conservation sales tax. That means for every $8 spent on taxable items in Missouri, one penny goes to conservation.
Can I get the magazine mailed to me if I live outside of Missouri?
Absolutely! Out-of-state subscriptions are $7 per year, and out-of-country subscriptions are $10 per year. You can pay up to three years. Contact our circulation office at ConservationistMagazine@mdc.mo.gov or call 573-522-4115, ext. 3856 or 3249 to find out more.
Can I get a teacher set for my classroom?
When will I get my first issue?
We work approximately 60 days in advance, so after you sign up, please give about two months for your first issue to arrive.
When does my subscription expire?
Missouri subscriptions are for five years. Paid subscriptions for out-of-state or out-of-country can be set up for 1-3 years.
