The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) encourages Missourians to celebrate the value of Missouri trees and forests during Arbor Days in April by planting native trees and practicing proper tree care.
The Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM) awarded the annual David Risberg Memorial Grants for the third year in a row at the affiliate luncheon during our annual convention. These grants honor the memory of David A. Risberg, who was passionate about conservation, by making conservation projects across Missouri possible. These grants are only available to CFM affiliate organizations.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture will invest more than $250,000 this fiscal year in Missouri, through the Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration Partnership to Restore Glades and Woodlands in the Central Ozarks. The funds will be available through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) to forest landowners in 10 counties in south-central Missouri.
