Missourians who have an interest in working in conservation can participate in the Department of Conservation’s Protection Volunteer Program. Macon County Conservation Agent Jared Kelly says this serves largely as a ride-along program.
Volunteers will be able to travel all over the state for conservation programs and outreach efforts. Kelly says this program provides a unique insight into the work of the Missouri Department of Conservation.
Kelly adds there are a variety of volunteer opportunities throughout the department.
Anyone interested in the program should contact their local conservation agent.
