MDC Issues Helpful Reminders For Coming Holiday Weekend

With the Fourth-of-July weekend coming up, the Missouri Department of Conservation encourages people to look for some red, white, and blue in nature through a holiday hike, bird watching, backyard fun, fishing, and other outdoor activities.

MDC reminds everyone to be careful with fireworks, campfires, and other sources of fire that could cause a wildfire.

Fireworks are prohibited on all MDC conservation areas, accesses, and other Department locations.

MDC reminds the public that it is still critical to continue to heed all COVID-19 public-health measures during outdoor activities, such as physical distancing, avoiding overcrowding, handwashing, and others.
