By The Examiner staff

Local offices of the Missouri Department of Conservation, closed since early in 2020 due to the pandemic, were set to reopen Monday. 

Those include:

• Burr Oak Woods Nature Center, 1401 N.W. Park Road in Blue Springs.

• The Anita B. Gorman Discovery Center, 4750 Troost Ave. in Kansas City. 

• The department’s regional office at 12405 S.E. Ranson Road, at the James A. Reed Memorial Wildlife Area in Lee’s Summit.

While closed, these offices have offered virtual programming, and no-contact outdoor events. Now visitors will have access to exhibits and restrooms at Burr Oak Woods and the Gorman Discovery Center. Virtual and outdoor events will continue.
