Excitement stirs in the air at Burr Oak Woods. It is special event week and we are indeed excited about this event, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Missouri Department of Conservation. We will celebrate success stories of wildlife restoration by the citizens of Missouri.
In 1937, many Missouri residents became aware of the rapidly dwindling numbers of wildlife in the state. In 1976, innovative visionaries passed the 1/8 of 1 percent sales tax with the Design for Conservation. Throughout the past 75 years, MDC has worked closely with it citizens to restore healthy diversity in the Fish Forests and wildlife to the state.
On Friday, April 27th, at 6:00 pm Burr Oak Woods will celebrate these efforts with you in a free fun-filled event, suitable for the entire family. There will be wild crafts and hands-on activities for all ages.
Rub elbows with the stars! Become part of the glitz and glamour at the 75th anniversary Wildlife Academy Awards. The awards are hosted by everyone’s favorite celeb, Billy Chrysalis. Don’t forget to your camera! The rumor mill has it that Joan Rivers-Streams will be at Burr Oak Woods with her Red Carpet Rundown and that many of the stars will be on hand for photo ops and autographs!
