MoDNR's Soil and Water Conservation Program

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources was created on July 1, 1974, under the Omnibus State Reorganization Act of 1974 and Missouri Revised Statutes, section 640.010, RSMo.

The department aspires to help Missouri citizens thrive by balancing a healthy environment with a healthy economy. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of many, we have made significant improvements to our state's air, land and water resources and provided educational resources about Missouri's natural and cultural history. We will continue to work to provide all Missourians a healthy environment in which to live, work and enjoy the outdoors.
