JOPLIN, Mo. – Corporal Tyler Green may be new to the job of Jasper County Missouri Department of Conservation Agent, but the area he’ll be patrolling is very familiar to him.

Starting Oct. 1, Green will begin his duties as conservation agent for Jasper County. He will work alongside fellow Jasper County Conservation Agent Corporal Will Carr.

Green’s new MDC assignment is an opportunity for him to come home. The Webb City native is a 2004 graduate of Webb City High School and a 2008 graduate of Missouri Southern State University.

“Jasper County was where I learned to love Missouri’s abundant natural resources, so I’m thrilled to be back here protecting them,” Green said.

In addition to knowing his new county, Green is also familiar with enforcing Missouri’s fish and wildlife regulations. He has nine years of conservation agent experience prior to his current assignment in Jasper County. Green’s previous assignments were in Cedar, Knox, and Buchanan counties. Prior to that, he was also a volunteer in MDC’s Protection Branch.

Both Green and Carr work out of their homes. Green can be reached at 417-385-8224 and Carr can be reached at 417-736-5106. People are reminded that game law violations can also be reported to the Operation Game Thief Hotline, 1-800-392-1111.
