MDC Connects Schools, Teachers, and Students With Nature

Education Branch


Local Conservation Educators

To help connect all Missouri students to nature, MDC partners with and supports school administrators and teachers. Across Missouri, you’ll find 29 conservation educators located in specific counties and school districts. These educators provide MDC resources and support for their local classroom teachers and schools.

Find your local conservation educator to learn more about free conservation education programs, available classroom curricula and materials, and hands-on training near you. Your local educator can help you find available materials, non-competitive grants to apply for, and other support that will help you easily connect your school and classroom to nature.
