Warrensburg, Mo. – Conservation Agent Christa Cox is patrolling the forests, fields and rivers of Johnson County for the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Cox brings experience from southeast Missouri where she served three years as conservation agent in New Madrid County. She assumed her new duties Oct. 1.

“While my primary duty as an agent will be to enforce the Wildlife Code, you may also see me teaching hunter education, giving school programs or speaking at local meetings,” Cox said.    

When not on duty, she enjoys biking, cat fishing, hunting and playing softball.

Cox is already familiar with the Warrensburg community. Originally from Thayer, Cox moved to Poplar Bluff after high school to attend Three Rivers Community College where she earned an associate’s degree in Administrative Justice in 2008. She then attended the University of Central Missouri where she received a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice in 2010. Following graduation, she returned to Poplar Bluff where she worked a variety of jobs before being accepted into the MDC’s 2012 Conservation Agent Training Class.

“I’m very excited to return to the Kansas City area,” Cox said. “It feels much like home already.”

Agent Cox can be reached at 660-422-0717 or by email at . For more information about conservation agents in Missouri, visit
