Got cabin fever? The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites you to discover nature and spend a day with wildlife from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 28 at Fulton High School, 1 Hornet Drive in Fulton. All parts of the event are free and open to the public.

Come out and learn more about the Show-me-State’s mammals and fish and the MDC’s operation game thief program. There will be archery shooting for kids of all ages, a big bucks exhibit, plus certified deer antler scorers will be present to measure trophy whitetails and see how it compares to the “Missouri Monarch”, the current state record whitetail trophy. Additionally, the World Bird Sanctuary will be presenting an educational program about raptors, beginning at 11 a.m.

“This event is a great opportunity to learn more about the forest, fish and wildlife in Missouri,” said MDC Conservation Agent Bob Lyons. “Department staff will be available to answer questions about ponds and lakes, trees and forests, and just about any upland game wildlife you can think of.” 

Grab the family and head out to discover nature and learn more about Missouri’s forest, fish and wildlife at MDC’s Day with Wildlife.
