The Missouri Department of Conservation is celebrating our 75th anniversary. The beginning of Missouri’s unique citizen-led conservation story is featured here. Many of the successful partnerships and programs that have helped to restore the fish, forest and wildlife resources of Missouri, as well as the challenges ahead, will be highlighted in the “Conservationist” over the next year.
The Conservation Department was created by a citizen-led effort to restore Missouri's fish, forests and wildlife 75 years ago. Since then, many conservation successes have been achieved thanks to partnerships.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources.
We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature.
