Department will offer more programs online
Citing ongoing concerns due to COVID-19, the Missouri Department of Conservation announced Wednesday that it has extended its cancellation of programs and events at nature centers and other Department locations through June 30.
Officials stated that to help continue connecting people with nature, MDC will offer more of its nature-focused programs through online formats. Visitors will soon be able to find several programs at mdc.mo.gov/events-s3, officials said.
The online offerings are designed to make it more convenient and comfortable for people to attend the programs virtually from wherever they are located.
Conservation-department workers typically provide hundreds of public programs each year at its various nature centers and other locations around the state. As the COVID-19 pandemic became apparent, MDC canceled its public programs and events in March and has extended the cancellations a number of times since then.
Programs will be added as they become available.
Participants in MDC online programs will be required to register online and will be emailed a program survey and other information after the event. Programs will typically be 30 minutes or less and participants will be able to ask questions online.
