The Missouri Master Naturalist program is a community-based natural resource education and volunteer service program for adults, sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and the University of Missouri Extension.  The mission is to engage Missourians in the stewardship of our state's natural resources through science-based education and volunteer community service.  Volunteers support conservation efforts and natural resource education in the local community.  General information can be found at http://extension.missouri.edu/masternaturalist.

Missouri Master Naturalists Kids Club

The Missouri Master Naturalists-Lake of the Ozarks Chapter has been having some serious fun with their Conservation Kids Club program this fall and winter, but now they are getting ready to bust loose!  This summer the chapter will have the Kids Club Sessions at the Camdenton Conservation Office on Thunder Mountain Road with outside adventures, new gizmos, and much more fun.  You will get outside and experience nature, listen, learn, walk, talk, experiment and explore.  If you and you and your third or fourth grade young person would like to join the Kids Club for some summer outdoor fun with bird brains, owl prowls, evening adventures and little exploration of the goofy and gross side of nature, please call the Camdenton Conservation Office.  Summer Kids Club will meet the third Thursday of each month during the months of May, June and July from 6 pm to 7:30 pm.  The program is open to all third and fourth grade individuals with an accompanying adult.   Registration is required in advance.  Please contact Jodi Moulder at the Camdenton Conservation Office, phone 573-346-2210, extension 233, to register.
