Finding ways to live with nature is an ever-increasing challenge today, especially in urban areas. The Missouri Department of Conservation’s Community Conservation Team, comprised of regional conservation department staff, educates developers, consultants and local government representatives about the social, environmental and economic impacts of common development practices and the benefits of the alternatives. In order to help people in urban areas connect with nature in their everyday lives, encourage resource-friendly development, and cultivate natural diversity, the Missouri Conservation Department promotes community conservation. Join Community Conservation Planner, Angie Weber as she demonstrates projects, planning, and funding opportunities that restore natural diversity in the St. Louis area– opportunities that can be used in areas before, during, and after development.
