SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – When Jeremy Edwards begins his duties as Dade County Conservation agent on Sept. 1, he will be patrolling an area he knows well. A native of Sarcoxie in nearby Jasper County, he grew up fishing and camping at Stockton Lake and is looking forward to helping protect the resources of that area that he has enjoyed since he was a youth.

“I love the outdoors and I want to protect the fish, forest and wildlife natural resources we have in this state,” he said. “If we work together to properly manage and protect these resources, future generations will be able to enjoy them like we do.

Prior to his Dade County assignment, Edwards was one of two conservation agents in Shannon County. In addition to his enforcement duties, Edwards has been involved with trapping and eradicating feral hogs, elk restoration and black bear trapping and tagging. He graduated from Missouri Southern State University in 2013 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

Edwards said he is looking forward to getting to know and working with the people of Dade County. He can be reached at or (417) 955-2389.
