MILAN, Mo. — The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) invites all ages to discover nature and spend an evening with wildlife from 6 – 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 19, at the Milan School gym, 373 S. Market St. No registration is required and all parts of the event are free and open to all ages.

MDC staff will display exhibits on forestry, furbearers, deer, turkey, fisheries, quail, habitat management, and hunter education. Visitors can also check out a Live Snakes of Missouri display, and certified professionals will be on hand to score antlers. MDC Small Game Coordinator David Hoover will give a featured presentation on quail and small game management at 7 p.m. in the school library.  

“MDC selects different locations around the state each year to hold these events,” said Conservation Agent Sean Ernst. “Evening with Wildlife is a way of educating children and adults about issues relating to conservation. Don’t miss this great opportunity to explore the endless possibilities of the great outdoors.”

Partner organizations and individuals will highlight and answer questions about Missouri’s natural resources.
