Did you know that you can get FREE STUFF about Missouri outdoors and conservation?!?

April 10, 2013

There are already a LOT of resources for information about camping and hiking out there on the internet and in “Ye Olde Booke” form, including some specific to Missouri and even the St. Louis area.


Two monthly publications put out by the Missouri Department of Conservation that you need to be receiving if you aren’t already are the Missouri Conservationist and (in MY region) the Conservation Connections Newsletter. If this is the first you’ve heard of either of them, follow the links RIGHT NOW (!!!!) and sign up for them! The MO Conservationist is a monthly magazine that is free to all Missouri households, and it features a lot of articles about all sorts of stuff concerning Missouri forests and hunting and fishing and what the MDC is up to.


The Newsletter is more of a listing of different events and classes that you can be a part of at the local facilities in your area. They break up Missouri into eight regions, each with their own specific newsletter. As far as I know, everything they offer is free to attend, and they have really neat things for the experienced and novice outdoors-person to do.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources also has a magazine. It is called Missouri Resources, and it comes out three times a year and is free for Missouri residents. It is a great publication that focuses on our impact on the environment around us, and what the DNR is using it’s resources for to protect it. They show more of the scientific and technical side of what they are doing, and have a lot of articles full of great pictures and valuable information.


Between the Missouri Department of Conservation and the Missouri Department of Natural Resources, along with federal agencies, local government, and private organizations, Missouri has a lot to see and do out there in the woods around us. If you aren’t a subscriber to the aforementioned publications, please check them out. You won’t be disappointed!

  1. Gabriel,
    Thanks for promoting our magazine and events. The “Conservation Connection” is actually the name of the newsletter that is specific to the St. Louis area. The link that you provided to our “Regions” page on our website does just what you said but that webpage is different than the Conservation Connection newsletter. It’s a minor point but I thought some readers might be confused. I’m glad that you and your family are taking advantage of the outdoor opportunities in your region. It can make a lifelong difference for children to enjoy those experiences while young.

    • Thank you for pointing that out! I will reword it so it makes more sense. And thank you for checking it out!
