The Missouri Department of Conservation is hoping Show-Me state residents can help them with two Newton County properties.
the MDC is hosting an open comment period lasting unitl April 30th on Fort Crowder and Bicentennial Conservation areas. members of the department have created a twenty five year plan for these locations which may change how the land is used.These comments are a chance for residents that use these facilities to weigh in on the current plans.
“The comments are helpful because we sometimes don’t always think of everything that the public may or may not want to do witha property, but all those comments filter through how the property is to be managed.” says MDC Community Forester Jon Skinner
residents can go online and share their comments with the department and view the plans.
