Executive Summary
A Web-based survey consisting of 18 questions (including 11 items with multiple response lists)
was administered September 23 to October 24, 2008, to 346 selected individuals identified in a
consensus process as leaders in the Missouri Outdoor community. The survey’s primary
objective was to allow leaders to assess progress, identify challenges and opportunities, and
propose strategies related to Missouri Outdoors. Final response was 248, or 72% (248/346).

Selected Results and Implications:
I. With few exceptions, the large majority of respondents had little trouble processing or
    understanding the all-inclusive phrase, “Missouri Outdoors,” defined at the start of the
    survey as, “Soil, water, air, fish, forests, wildlife, nature, natural communities, and out-of-
    doors recreation.”

II. Most leaders thought Missourians placed at least “somewhat more” importance on the
    Outdoors in their lifestyles, compared to residents of other states.

III. Respondents identified the six most important actions upon which a quality Missouri
     Outdoors should be grounded:
    1. Collaboration among state, federal, and community resource management agencies
       and non-governmental organizations;
    2. Establishing an Outdoor ethic in the new generation;
    3. Recognizing the vital connection of Missouri’s quality of life, quality of livelihood,
       and quality of Outdoors;
    4. Increasing and enhancing Outdoor education;
    5. Developing and engaging an electorate informed on Outdoor issues; and
    6. Maintaining an active political lobby for the Outdoors.

Each foregoing action concerned relationship-building and/or educational activities.

Almost qualifying as “very important,” but rated as “moderately important” by respondents:
    7.    Increasing funding for state resource management agencies;
    8.    Expanding landowner incentive programs;
    9.    Increasing funding for conservation-related non-governmental organizations; and
    10.   Increasing funding for land protection (outright purchase and easements.)

Each foregoing action concerned enhanced funding.

While respondents perceive increased funding as “moderately important” to the future of Missouri
Outdoors, they think institutional, social, and cultural actions are more important.

IV. No Outdoor agency/organization in Missouri was characterized as “ineffective” by leaders,
    though only one organization was described as “very effective.”

What are the institutional attributes and arrangements that make the Missouri Department of
Conservation “very effective,” and to what extent might these attributes be advanced within other
Outdoor institutional arrangements in the state?
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                               Page iv


V. Respondents characterized outdoor progress as “good” for:
    1.   Conserving plants, animals, and their habitats,
    2.   Supporting outdoor recreation,
    3.   Helping private landowners manage and enhance outdoor resources, and
    4.   Promoting healthy and sustainable forests.

The fact that respondents did not assign “excellent” to any progress area reminds that “there’s
always room for improvement” in Missouri’s Outdoors.

VI. Two priorities that Missouri’s Outdoor Leaders identified as warranting highest attention—and
    two priorities upon which they (and the public at large) might unite in common action—are:
    1. Protecting clean and healthy water, and
    2. Teaching Missourians about the importance of soil, water, fish, forests, wildlife and
       natural resources.

VII. Missouri’s Outdoor Leaders most favor dedicated funding mechanisms for Outdoors services,
     facilities, and programming.

VIII.Missouri’s Outdoor Leaders thought that the only “high barrier” to improving the future of
     Missouri Outdoors was “elected officials’ priorities.”

There’s clear and strong need among Outdoors Leaders and the Outdoors community to work
more closely with elected officials, engaging them in practical ways in Missouri’s Outdoors, and
educating them to the importance of the Outdoors to Missourians’ quality of life.

IX. Respondents described the greatest threat to the future of Missouri Outdoors as,
    “Urbanization/development.” Indeed, Outdoor Leaders came very close to describing this
    threat as “extreme”—not just “high,” as was their appraisal on average.

Urbanization/development—and implications for irreversible impacts on the Outdoors—is the very
issue that Missouri and the nation seem incapable of addressing in any way that doesn’t prompt
strident and divisive dialogue. How might this topic be engaged in Missouri in productive fashion?

    •    Nine other possible threats to Missouri Outdoors were described as “high” (in order):
             o   Increasing competition for limited natural resources,
             o   A Missouri citizenry losing interest in the Outdoors,
             o   Loss of biological diversity,
             o   Inadequate funding for resource restoration & management,
             o   Invasive plants and animals,
             o   Lack of land protections,
             o   Political opposition to enhancing Missouri’s Outdoors,
             o   Loosening of environmental controls in federal and state laws, and
             o   Use of crops and biomass for alternative energy sources.

The lowest ranking threat, characterized by respondents as “medium threat” was:
    •    Climate change.

Introduction: Missouri’s Abiding Tradition of “Outdoor Innovation”
Missouri citizens have demonstrated their commitment to the state’s outdoors in unprecedented
fashion. Unique in the nation are two dedicated state sales taxes approved by the Missouri
citizenry through constitutional amendments: the first, a one-eighth percent ($.01 per $8.00)
earmarked to fish, forest, and wildlife programs of the state’s Department of Conservation, and
the second, a one-tenth percent ($0.01 per $10.00) earmarked to parks and soils programs of the
state’s Department of Natural Resources.

These two programs, however, are exemplary of an abiding tradition of innovation that
characterizes natural resource management and conservation in Missouri. For example,
foundational to eventual passage of these unique funding mechanisms was the 1935 formation of
the “Restoration and Conservation Federation of Missouri” (today’s MO Conservation
Federation), a citizens’ group that embarked on a successful petition drive to establish a non-
political fish, wildlife, and forestry administration in 1936. And this same Conservation Federation
provided a large umbrella under which conservation, environmental, and outdoor-interest groups
could rally for successful passage of the “conservation sales tax” in 1976, and the “soils and
parks tax” in 1984 (reauthorized several times since, most recently in 2006).

But it was from dire conditions of the landscape that the Missouri citizenry’s land ethic grew. As
outdoor historian Jim Keefe (1987) observed two decades ago:
        Our ancestors were probably the most rapacious users of natural resources
        the world has ever known. They came into Missouri intent on exploiting it. It
        was a land to be used, even used up, if necessary.
        …The forests were used for building materials or fuel, the wildlife exploited
        for its pelts or for food. A lot of wildlife was simply gunned down as targets.
        …Only a generation or two ago, the forested hills were largely denuded, the
        fragile soil gone from the rocky slopes, the streams choked with gravel. Old
        photographs in Carl Sauer’s little book, Geography of the Ozark Highlands
        of Missouri, written in the 1920s, show largely bare hills.
        …No voices were raised against such waste. …There was little thought of
        tomorrow (“The First 50 Years,” MO Dept of Conservation, p. 1).

That was then.

In recent years, it was precisely that vision of a better tomorrow for Missouri’s outdoors that
produced innovative natural resource and conservation initiatives that offered hope—and
successes. For example, unimaginable even 30 years ago are several generations of “Farm Bills”
incorporating invaluable conservation provisions into land management incentives benefitting
Missouri agriculture and natural resources.

Political and financial help is lent by private non-government organizations with diverse interests,
partnering with public agencies to leverage scarce dollars toward a wide array of natural resource
and conservation accomplishments.

The strategic plans of the Departments of Natural Resources and Conservation speak to
“preserving Missouri’s outdoor recreation heritage,” “teaching Missourians about fish, forest, and
wildlife resources, “supporting conservation in our communities,” “protecting Missouri’s land, air,
and water resources,” and “preservation, use, and enjoyment of Missouri’s natural and cultural
resources.”
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                             Page 2



With such promise—and with no apparent issues as dire as yesteryear—what’s the catch for
natural resources and conservation?

Today, things are changing—as they always will—and some of these issues and opportunities
appear every bit as urgent as yesterday’s crises…
    •   …such as the number of Missourians—up from 4 million in 1950, to about 6 million in
        2000, growing to an estimated 6.4 million in 2030. Missouri's cities, suburbs, and country
        offer great places to live, work, and recreate; yet the outdoor appeal and open space that
        long-time Missourians and new arrivals find so satisfying are at risk to infrastructure
        development, land-use change, and inevitable growth; a dynamic tension between
        human endeavor and natural environment.
    •   …such as the ways people perceive and use the outdoors—for example, differences in
        outdoor activity and interest by distinct generations, particularly today’s children; by
        ethnic and racial groups; and by urban, suburban, and rural dwellers.
    •   …such as the extent to which non-native plants and animals have taken root in our state,
        affecting the viability of native species.
    •   …such as the just-released Missouri Comprehensive Wildlife Strategy, identifying
        Conservation Opportunity Areas in which management strategies could conserve both
        wildlife populations and the natural systems on which they depend.
    •   …such as the value of a dollar—it takes about $4 of today’s money to buy the natural
        resource services and facilities that $1 purchased in 1976. Recession—even the specter
                                                                 st
        of economic depression—mark the first decade of the 21 century.
    •   …such as the event "2009 Kids Inaugural: We are the future," reflecting the identity,
        excitement, and commitment of diverse generations in America and Missouri who will
        define Outdoor Experience in their own ways. How do we contribute our visions for
        Missouri Outdoors to the next generations?

These and other socio-cultural and landscape changes demand the innovative response that has
been an abiding tradition of Missouri Outdoors.

And innovation for the Outdoors in the Show-Me state usually begins with a gathering of people
saying….OK….”Show Me!” To this end, a gathering was proposed:

                         “A Summit on the Future of Missouri Outdoors”
                                     The Next 75 Years

Summit Background
On February 12, 2008, an ad hoc Program Committee first met at the headquarters of
Conservation Federation of Missouri (CFM). Eventual representation on this committee included:
    •   Audubon Missouri
    •   Bass Pro Shops
    •   Conservation Federation of Missouri
    •   George Clark Missouri State Chapter National Wild Turkey Federation
    •   Missouri Association of Municipal Utilities
    •   Missouri Department of Conservation
    •   Missouri Department of Natural Resources
    •   The Nature Conservancy
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                             Page 3



Over the course of additional meetings in 2008 on May 2, June 19, July 8, August 7, September
4, October 2, November 6, December 15 and in 2009 on January 8, January 19, February 5,
March 5, April 2 and May 7, plans were advanced for:
    •   A pre-Summit Web survey of Missouri’s Outdoor leadership to inform Summit program
        development;
    •   Tentative date-time (Thursday, May 28 (starting at 1 p.m.) and Friday, May 29 (ending ~8
        p.m.)) and place (Columbia, Missouri);
    •   Post-Summit telephone survey of Missouri’s general public to test interest/acceptance of
        ideas emerging from Summit.

Pre-Summit Leadership Survey
The rationale for surveying Outdoor leaders is the “80-20 Rule”—that 80% of the passion, fire,
and financing for any initiative/innovation flow from 20% of a constituency—the opinion leaders.
Program Committee members collaborated on the development and refinement of survey
questions administered to selected leaders in the Missouri natural resources, conservation,
open space, and outdoor recreation community (see Appendix A, Questionnaire). Committee
members used a consensus-process to assemble the list of Outdoor leaders to be contacted
(original n = 366).

Survey items were designed to assess leaders’ perceptions of:
    •   The importance Missourians place on the Outdoors;
    •   The degree to which Missourians are informed regarding the status of Missouri Outdoors;
    •   Factors necessary to enhance quality of Missouri Outdoors;
    •   Overall effectiveness of selected organizations in protecting and enhancing
        Missouri Outdoors;
    •   Progress in selected Outdoor efforts in the last 10 years;
    •   Attention/effort that should be directed to selected Outdoor efforts in the next 10 years;
    •   Methods of garnering additional attention/resources for Missouri Outdoors;
    •   What role should state, federal, NGOs, and the private sector play in acquiring additional
        resources for Missouri Outdoors;
    •   Threats to the future of Missouri Outdoors;
    •   Barriers to advancing Missouri Outdoors; and
    •   Ideas and strategies for ensuring the future quality of Missouri Outdoors.

On September 23, 2008, the 366 Outdoor leaders were invited by e-mail to complete a Web
survey (SNAP® Survey) addressing progress and prospects in “Missouri Outdoors.” After
removing 18 invalid addresses and two duplicates, the final contact group (or denominator in the
response fraction) numbered 346. E-mails were slowly released into the system, and
personalized by Dave Murphy, Executive Director of Conservation Federation of Missouri (on
behalf of the Committee), to avoid the “digital appearance” of an e-mail blast. However, 44
addresses in the original survey invitation “bounced” (or were undeliverable) likely because they
were rejected by 2 specific Internet Service Providers as “spam.” These 44 addresses thus
                                       st
required a customized invitation. A “1 reminder” was sent to non-respondents on September 23,
2008, and a second and final reminder on October 13, 2008. The survey closed on October 24,
2008.

Results
Final response was 248, or 72% (248/346). High response
                                                                    From Missouri Outdoors
evidenced the importance that outdoor leaders place on
                                                                    Leadership Survey 2009:
Missouri Outdoors—the present, and prospects. Data
were tabulated using SPSS® (version 15). Cross-                     “This is an interesting survey,
tabulation of all questions by selected variables is                but it requires discussion
presented in Appendix G. Missing values are not reported            rather than random dots.”
in the following narrative, but are detailed in Appendix H.

Hopefully, respondents’ answers to the Missouri Outdoors Leader Survey 2008 represented more
than random dots (“dots” referring to the “radio buttons” by which respondents answered survey
questions). But this individual respondent’s sentiment was right-on; unless the following numbers
compel discussion, prompt critical thought, and help build the Summit program, results only dimly
illuminate the future of Missouri Outdoors.

UNDERLYING PHRASEOLOGY: MISSOURI “OUTDOORS.” With few exceptions, the large majority of
respondents demonstrated little trouble processing the phrase, “Missouri Outdoors”—that is,
there was virtually no push-back or quibbling about the connotation or concept of Missouri
Outdoors, defined at the start of the survey:
        Outdoors goes beyond any one agency or organization. The term "Outdoors"
        is defined as: Soil, water, air, fish, forests, wildlife, nature, natural
        communities, and out-of-doors recreation.

This broad definition was considered essential to avoid any limitations that might accompany use
of words that have narrower or traditional meaning in the Missouri lexicon, such as
“conservation,” and “natural resources.”

RESPONDENT BACKGROUND. Two background or “classification” variables of interest were the
length of time respondents had been involved in activities to help protect or enhance Missouri
Outdoors, and respondents’ affiliation (Table 1).

Table 1. Length of involvement in Missouri Outdoors and Affiliation.

A majority of respondents were long-time participants in helping to protect or enhance Missouri
Outdoors, with 58% involved 21 or more years, and fully 20%, 40 or more years. A plurality (44%)
of respondents characterized their affiliations as “non-governmental,” followed by those working
for “state agency” (26%), and “private citizen, unaffiliated” (11%). Several respondents offered
other affiliations (Appendix B).

Respondents involved in Missouri Outdoors less than one year were combined with those who
had been involved 1 to 5 years; “involvement” was then cross-tabulated with “affiliation” (Table 2)
to reveal that majorities or pluralities of all groups were involved with Missouri Outdoors for 21
years or more; notable as evidence of the experience the response group had with Missouri’s
outdoor issues, but predictable, given the select group of outdoor leaders chosen for this project.

MISSOURIANS’ AWARENESS OF THE OUTDOORS. Respondents were asked in several ways for
their opinions about the degree to which Missourians are attuned to the Outdoors. First,
respondents were asked how much importance Missourians place on the Outdoors in their
lifestyles, compared to residents of other states (Table 6).

Table 6. “Compared to residents of other states, how much importance do you think Missourians
place on the Outdoors in their lifestyles?” by affiliation, years involvement in Missouri Outdoors,
and residence (region of state).

Examination of frequency distributions suggested that most respondents thought Missourians
placed at least “somewhat more” importance on the Outdoors in their lifestyles, compared to
residents of other states. This was confirmed by a mean score analysis. Indeed, on average, all
sub-groups arranged by affiliation, length of Outdoor involvement, and Missouri region, agreed
that Missourians place “somewhat more” importance on the Outdoors than residents of other
states (Table 7). Groups attributing highest Outdoor interest to Missourians were those affiliated
with the “outdoor industry,” those involved with Missouri Outdoors for 21 to 39 years, and
respondents from the Northeast and Southwest regions.


  Explanation of “mean score analysis.” A very useful and interpretable method for summarizing
  scaled data (as in foregoing Table 6) is to calculate mean scores for each item (or question), and
  assign “word anchors” based on the rounded means scores. For example, for “How much
  importance do Missourians place on the Outdoors…,” 1 = “Much more,” 2 = “Somewhat more,”
  3 = “Neither more nor less,” 4 = “Somewhat less,” 5 = “Much less.” (“Don’t know” responses
  eliminated for purposes of this analysis). Then, calculate mean scores for each response group of
  interest, and assign “word anchors” based on those rounded mean scores. This “mean score
  analysis” is used frequently in this report.


Table 7. “Compared to residents of other states, how much importance do you think Missourians
place on the Outdoors in their lifestyles?” by affiliation, years involvement in Missouri Outdoors,
and residence (region of state). Mean score analysis, where 1 = “Much more,” 2 = “Somewhat
more,” 3 = “Neither more nor less,” 4 = “Somewhat less,” 5 = “Much less.” Means ranked from
most importance to least importance within each classification variable.

A second assessment of Missourians’ Outdoor commitment asked respondents for their
perceptions of the Missouri citizenry’s commitment to Missouri Outdoors over time (Table 8). As a
group, a majority of respondents (54%) indicated that Missourians were “very committed” to
Missouri Outdoors around 1976, or voter approval of the one-eighth percent Conservation Sales
Tax. Tellingly, as a group, respondents indicated that only around 1955 (the time of “traditional”
funding for the Outdoors) were Missourians less committed to Missouri Outdoors than today,
perhaps revealing a concern that Missourians’ commitment to the Outdoors today might be
eroding and could achieve the low marks of 1955 unless reversed. This interpretation was
confirmed by mean score analysis revealing that respondents characterized Missourians as “very
committed” to the Outdoors in 1976 (one-eighth tax) (Table 9). Nearly as committed were
Missourians in 1984 (“moderately”) (first approval of one-tenth tax), and citizens in 1935-36 with
voter approval of the Conservation Commission. However, respondents roughly equated
Missourians’ Outdoors commitment in 1955 (era of “traditional” funding) to Outdoor commitment
today (though both levels of commitment were characterized as “moderate”).

Third-most informed were “federal agencies.” Least informed were urban Missourians—an
intriguing finding, because urban Missourians ultimately carried passage of the 1976
Conservation Sales Tax, with majority approval of the referendum in the St. Louis, Kansas City,
and Springfield areas. Of note, as well, was respondents’ characterization of “elected officials at
the federal level” as only “slightly informed” about Missouri Outdoors. Presumably, these officials
would need to be knowledgeable enough about Missouri’s Outdoors to promote, or at least
support, any action at the federal level in support of Missouri Outdoors.

The frequency distributions suggested that “collaboration” among public and private organizations
and “establishing an Outdoor ethic in the new generation” were among the most important actions
needed for enhancing the quality of Missouri Outdoors. These first impressions were confirmed
by mean score analysis (Table 13).

Six items qualified as “very important.” In order of importance:
           1. Collaboration among state, federal, and community resource management
              agencies and non-governmental organizations;
           2. Establishing an Outdoor ethic in the new generation;
           3. Vital connection among Missouri’s quality of life, quality of livelihood, and quality
              of Outdoors;
           4. Outdoor education;
           5. An electorate informed on Outdoor issues; and
           6. Active political lobby for the outdoors.

These six might be characterized as the “6 Commandments” or conditions undergirding the
quality of Missouri Outdoors.

Almost qualifying as “very important”—but rated as “moderately important” based on mean scores
(1.50) —were:
           7. “Increased funding for state resource management agencies,” and
           8. “Landowner incentive programs.”

Perhaps it is especially telling that these items ranked sixth and seventh in importance. That is,
though funding and incentive programs are indeed “moderately important,” they rank behind other
social and cultural factors. Is it possible that these data identify a shift over time in perceived
strategies to protect Missouri Outdoors? When the one-eighth Conservation and one-tenth Parks
and Soils taxes were proposed, focus was on starting new programs and strengthening existing
ones. In contrast, survey results point to the need for macro- or micro-societal changes—
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                                                   Page 14


changing the value of the Outdoor experience and getting agencies to cooperate more
effectively—rather than establishing new programs. These types of changes require big thinking.

Equally insightful was the finding that “stronger environmental regulatory laws” ranked last among
the 14 items evaluated by respondents (though “regulatory laws still qualified as “moderately
important”). It appears that Missouri’s Outdoor leaders find much more promise for Outdoor
quality through cooperation versus coercion or confrontation.

AGENCY/ORGANIZATION EFFECTIVENESS. Respondents were asked to evaluate the overall
effectiveness of agencies and organizations active in the Missouri Outdoor community (Table 14).

Mean score analysis (Table 15) helped interpret the foregoing frequency distributions, revealing
that no agency/organization was described by Missouri’s Outdoor leaders as “ineffective”—
though two groups (“private landowners” and “U.S. Army Corps of Engineers”) were
characterized as “neither effective nor ineffective.” Respondents described the Missouri
Department of Conservation as “very effective,” and the remaining nine agencies/organizations
as “moderately effective.” Respondents were afforded the opportunity to provide open-ended or
narrative comments on overall effectiveness of agencies/organizations. These responses are
presented here, verbatim (Table 16), as well as in Appendix C.

  80% of the land in MO is in private hands---Landowner cooperation is vital to improvements
  Agencies are based on the outdoors in mind, so I feel that they protect and enhance but there can
  always be more.

  the former natural appeal of that area. Subdivision and shopping center development in St. Louis,
  Kansas City and Springfield metro areas chews up large tracts of open space. Redeveloping outdated
  housing in the older suburbs and core metro areas would be a better use of land. Certainly modern
  highways are important to our state's economy and safety, but all government agencies and private

  Constant plus and minus.
  Difficult to answer as all try to do good but some have wider base and stronger role in Missouri than
  others. All are doing good things in regard to at least some aspects of conservation.
  DU, as an individual organization, I believe to have been very effective in the areas they focus on.
  Ducks Unlimited is the leading NGO
  Effectiveness of agencies and organizations depends on the leadership they have, which can change

  Government agencies are too focused on red tape to actually get any broad scale differences made
  Grassroots organizations seem most effective to me.

 still needs to be the highest priority in an effort to leverage all possibilities.


 I would include fishing clubs/organizations and the James River Basin Partnership, Watershed
 Committee of the Ozarks, etc. in "other."
 Ignoring the needs and desires of private landowners undermines the willingness to cooperate.
 Many MO. landowners are very effective at protecting and enhancing MO. outdoors but as a whole, with
 MO. emphasis on production agriculture, become moderately ineffective - -Landowner programs have
 helped (especially purchased easement programs - WRP, GRP) but the CRP program has not kept
 pace with commodity prices enticing many participants to opt out sacrificing soil, water, and wildlife
 gains.

 more integration would really help
 Most federal agencies are too bureaucratic and politically motivated.
 My answers should reflect that some of the organizations are more effective than others at within
 specific areas, not necessarily overall.
 NGO's moderately effective
 Other Organizations category too broad...ratings range from highly effective to ineffective
 Small entities such as the Missouri Prairie Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, and others have an important
 role to play but are often over-looked.
 Small NGO's such as Missouri Prairie Foundation and orgs like Missouri Native Plant Society are also
 involved.
 The effectiveness of Fed agencies such as the National Park Service is mixed. They try to do a good at
 the Arch grounds in St. Louis but do very little to protect the Ozark National Riverways. Same with other
 Federal agencies.
 There are many local, regional groups that are flying under the radar screen and accomplishing much
 good for Missouri Outdoors. Some are affiliated with the larger entities that you mention, but not all. I
 think of a few of the following: Local Park & Recreation Depts, Regional Greenway or Park agencies.
 The Missouri Parks Association, The Missouri Parks and Recreation Assn, The Open Space Council,
 The Ozark Regional Land Trust, The LAD Foundation, The Meramec River Recreation Assn., Mo. River
 Relief, The St. Louis & KC Zoo, Forest Park Forever. The list is huge, but I think that you get the point.
 too broad a category to evaluate
 Unfortunately, it appears MoDNR has higher focus on economic interest rather than enforcement in
 protecting our natural resources
 Very large non-profits seem to spend most of their time talking to each other or their own membership
 or government invested groups, but not to the Public or young people in their terms or to relate to their
 needs. Many of these groups, private or government, seem -- into the recent past -- very elitist, and self
 perpetuating in primary purpose, like our lead politicians seeking re-election. Public support and
 understanding has struck me as a "necessary chore" -- not the most critical link in achieving what
 should be our common pride -- protecting and enhancing our Missouri Outdoors. Thanks to the
 guaranteed tax support to the state for conservation, we are, none-the-less, leagues ahead of many
 other states. I don't believe outdoor "industry" is a very reliable source of the Missouri Outdoors Health,
 if its protection interferes with private profits. Same can be said of "political profits" for Missouri
 politicians in the not too distant past.
 We're disappointed that the MDOC and USFS continue to support the concept of clear cutting.
 We could have used a slightly effective category here. Private conservation groups don't seem to
 communicate much. Conservation interests in Kansas City, St. Louis and the medium-sized cities
 stand silent on issues that are before state and federal legislatures, while a narrowly-focused farm lobby
 pummels legislators into believing they represent the state's majority view.

OUTDOOR PROGRESS & PRIORITIES. Outdoor leaders were asked to assess progress toward
nine key goals for Outdoor quality (Table 17). Mean score analysis of distributions revealed that
“excellent” progress was not ascribed to any of the nine goals, though progress toward four goals
was described as “good” (Table 18). In order of progress:

      1.   Conserving plants, animals, and their habitats;
      2.   Supporting outdoor recreation;
      3.   Helping private landowners manage their property to enhance outdoor resources; and
      4.   Promoting healthy and sustainable forests.

Respondents gave comparatively low marks to “reducing soil erosion.” Since start of the one-
tenth Parks and Soils tax, Missouri has reduced soil erosion rates more than any other state in
the nation, suggesting a communication disconnect between outdoor leaders and the Soil and
Water Conservation program. Least progress was ascribed to “protecting clean & healthy air,”
and second least, to “protecting clean & healthy water.”

   Missouri Outdoor leaders were asked to show the priority they would give over the next 10 years
   to the same nine goals for Outdoor quality (Table 19). A weakly moderate relationship (Pearson
   correlation = -0.403) suggested that the higher respondents’ appraisal of progress on a goal, the
   lower the perceived priority over the next 10 years—though obviously the relationship was less
   than perfect (Table 20); specifically (in order of priority—“much more attention”):
        1. Protecting clean and healthy water;
        2. Teaching Missourians about the importance of soil, water, fish, forests, wildlife, and
           natural resources.

“increased funding from federal sources”—both “somewhat supported” (Table 22).

  The fact that a mean score of 1.49 qualified as “a lot” of help—and that no mean score fell
  below 1.66—confirmed that respondents thought that every individual and organization should
  play some role in acquiring additional attention/resources for Missouri Outdoors (Table 24).

Tied at first for the group/s that should play the greatest role (“A lot”) were:
                 1. State agencies, and
                 1. Non-governmental organizations.

Strictly speaking, state (and federal) agencies are prohibited from using taxpayer resources to
pursue additional funding, except through budgeting processes. Perhaps leaders were
suggesting that state agencies can be especially helpful in crafting the vision toward which
additional resources could be directed.

A third group that respondents indicated should be involved “a lot” in acquiring additional
attention/resources was:
                 3. Outdoor industry.

Earlier, respondents indicated that the state’s Outdoor Industry was only “moderately informed”
on the status of Missouri’s Outdoors, and only “moderately effective” in protecting and enhancing
Missouri’s Outdoors—yet leaders thought it right that the Outdoor Industry be involved “a lot” in
acquiring additional Outdoor attention/resources. In light of these perceptions, the question
arises—what steps and strategies do stakeholder groups need to engage to reconcile perceived
levels of knowledge, effectiveness, and responsibility of Missouri’s Outdoor Industry?

BARRIERS & BRIDGES TO IMPROVING MISSOURI OUTDOORS. Outdoor leaders were asked to
evaluate possible barriers for state resource management agencies to improving the future of
Missouri Outdoors (Table 25).

The only potential barrier described as “high” was “elected officials’ priorities” (“high barrier”),
followed by “competing social priorities (“medium barrier”) and “funding” (“medium barrier”). “Low”
barriers were “staff training” and “agency/organization mission” (Table 25).

It must be noted that “competing social priorities” and “funding” nearly joined “elected officials’
priorities” as “high barriers” in the mean score analysis (Table 26). These results contribute to the
notion that competing social needs and politics will have great influence on the future of
Missouri’s Outdoors. But the fact that “funding” was the third-highest barrier gives some credence
to the idea that simply raising more money to do “more of the same” may not catch the
imagination and support of either Outdoor Leaders or the public. New, creative, and compelling
initiatives must explain how improving Missouri Outdoors will contribute to Missouri’s future
quality of life; versus bemoaning the challenges of declining revenues.

Missouri’s Outdoor leaders were given opportunity to offer their ideas and strategies—for
example, additional resources, programs, management models—for ensuring the future quality of
Missouri Outdoors. These responses are presented verbatim in Appendix D. A rough count
suggests that about 40% of answers proposed education/communication/marketing strategies,
about 20%, monetary strategies, and the balance, other approaches.

Respondents were asked to evaluate the degree of threat represented by a series of potential
challenges (Table 27). None of the potential threats posited to respondents was characterized as
“extreme,” though 10 were described by Missouri Outdoor leaders as “high,” with the highest
being,

THE BOTTOM $LINE$. Final questions in the survey asked Missouri Outdoor leaders what degree
of probability they thought existed that additional financial resources could be garnered at, first,
the federal level, and second, the state level (Table 28). Extremely sobering was the finding that
majorities thought the probability was “low” to “none” that additional financial resources for
Missouri Outdoors could be garnered at the federal (53%) or state (51%) levels. Using mean
score analysis (Table 29), this candid outlook was confirmed, at least for prospects at the federal
level. The mean score for additional resources at the state level just qualified for “medium
probability.”

be garnered at the federal level to protect and enhance Missouri Outdoors?” by “What degree of

Even more sobering is recognition that these somber appraisals came before industry “bail-out”
discussions and formal declaration of recession in fall, 2008, that very much bring into question
the ability of state and federal governments to entertain any new initiatives or programs.

Sentiments of Three Types of Outdoor Leaders in Missouri
TwoStep Cluster Analysis (SPSS®, 2005) identifies groups of individuals that are similar to each
other but different from individuals in other groups. In marketing terms, cluster analysis divides
clienteles into fairly distinct segments. By clustering Missouri’s Outdoor leaders into relatively
homogenous groups, one can distinguish and characterize leaders by their key sentiments
toward prospects for the future of Missouri Outdoors.
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                             Page 24


Six categorical variables were chosen from the Missouri Outdoors Leader Survey 2008 to cluster
respondents. All respondents included in the TwoStep Cluster Analysis had to have answered all
6 questions in order to be entered into the clustering procedure (thus reducing the analysis group
from 248 to 177):
    •   How long have you been involved in activities to help protect or enhance Missouri
        Outdoors;
    •   Your affiliation? (“other” eliminated for purposes of this analysis);
    •   Compared to residents of other states, how much importance do you think Missourians
        place on the Outdoors in their lifestyles (“don’t know” eliminated for purposes of this
        analysis);
    •   What’s your perception of the Missouri citizenry’s commitment to Missouri Outdoors
        TODAY? (“don’t know” eliminated for purposes of this analysis);
    •   What degree of probability do you think there is that additional financial resources can be
        garnered at the federal level to protect and enhance Missouri Outdoors (“don’t know”
        eliminated for purposes of this analysis);
    •   What degree of probability do you think there is that additional financial resources can be
        garnered at the federal level to protect and enhance Missouri Outdoors (“don’t know”
        eliminated for purposes of this analysis).

The data were randomized before the cluster procedure to eliminate the potential for any ordering
effect (“serial” effect or periodicity). “Autoclustering” was invoked to allow the procedure to
automatically choose the number of clusters in the solution.

Three segments emerged from the TwoStep Cluster Analysis (see Appendix F for the cluster
solution), and these were given names based on the apparent characteristics of each grouping:
    •   NGO-Industry-Realists,
    •   State-Agency-Realists, and
    •   Ever-hopefuls.

NGO-INDUSTRY-REALISTS. Forty-three percent (or 76 of 177) of the Outdoor leaders studied can
be characterized as NGO-Industry-Realists (Table 30). Most (60%) have been involved in
Missouri Outdoors for 21 years or more, so they’re extremely experienced with the Missouri
political and social landscape. Two-thirds (66%) are affiliated with non-governmental
organizations, or are private citizens (12%), or with Outdoor Industry (14%).

A majority (77%) grant that Missourians today are either “very committed” (22%) or “moderately
committed” (55%) to Missouri Outdoors. Indeed, 73% think that Missourians place at least
“somewhat more importance” on the Outdoors than do residents of other states, but the balance
(27%) aren’t as quick to attribute any special meaning to the Outdoors among Missourians.
Moreover, a large majority of these Outdoor leaders give “low” (75%) or “no” (5%) probability to
garnering additional resources for Missouri Outdoors at the federal level, with similarly dismal
expectations for “low” (72%) or “no” probability for additional resources at the state level.

STATE-AGENCY-REALISTS. Another group of “realists” consists entirely (100%) of Outdoor
leaders affiliated with state agencies (or 34 of 177, or 19% of all leaders). Most (85%) have been
involved with Missouri Outdoors for 21 to 39 years, so they too are very experienced with Outdoor
issues and opportunities. These leaders are much more guarded about their appraisal of
Missourians’ contemporary Outdoor commitment, with 65% granting that Missourians are
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                          Page 25


“moderately committed,” but 35% suggesting that Missourians are only “slightly committed”
to the Outdoors today. That said, nearly all (88%) answer that Missourians place “somewhat
more” importance on the Outdoors in their lifestyles, compared to residents of other states. If
there’s any hope for garnering additional financial resources for the Outdoors, State-Agency-
Realists place that hope at the federal level; 9% say there’s “high probability” that additional
federal resources could be forthcoming, 26% suggesting “medium probability” for such resources,
though 59% say “low probability”, and 6%, “no” probability. And State-Agency-Realists give
virtually no chance to garnering additional resources at the state level, with 91% concluding
that such probability is “low.”

EVER-HOPEFULS. This group of Missouri Outdoor leaders (67 of 177, or 38% of all leaders
studied) has the most hopeful outlook for securing additional financial resources for Missouri
Outdoors. Granted, it’s the group with fewest years involvement on the Missouri Outdoor scene
(compared to the other 2 leader groups), with 56% involved 20 years or less. The plurality of the
group (49%) is affiliated with non-governmental organizations, but group members also include
state agency leaders (25%), federal agency leaders (10%), private unaffiliated citizens (9%),
Outdoor industry leaders (3%), and community leaders (3%). Most (83%) say that Missourians
today are at least “somewhat committed” to the Outdoors in their lifestyles, and 31% say
Missourians are “very committed.” Moreover, 86% say that Missourians place at least “somewhat
more” importance on the Outdoors than residents of other states, and 28% say Missourians place
“much more” importance on the Outdoors than residents of other states.

Perhaps most optimistic of Outdoor leaders surveyed , 79% of Ever-Hopefuls say there’s “high
probability” (28%) or “medium probability” (51%) of garnering additional financial resources for
Missouri Outdoors at the federal level, and fully 92% suggest there’s “high probability” (22%) or
“medium probability” (70%) that additional financial resources can be garnered for Missouri
Outdoors at the state level.

Summary and Implications
I.   Respondents identified the six most important actions upon which a quality Missouri
     Outdoors should be grounded:
     1. Collaboration with state, federal, and community resource management agencies and
        non-governmental organizations;
     2. Establishing an Outdoor ethic in the new generation;
     3. Recognizing the vital connection of Missouri’s quality of life, quality of livelihood, and
        quality of Outdoors;
     4. Increasing and enhance outdoor education;
     5. Developing and engaging an electorate informed on Outdoor issues; and
     6. Maintaining an active political lobby for the outdoors.

Each foregoing action relates to relationship-building and/or educational activities.

Almost qualifying as “very important,” but rated as “moderately important” by respondents:
     7.    Increasing funding for state resource management agencies,
     8.    Expanding landowner incentive programs,”
     9.    Increasing funding for conservation-related non-governmental organizations, and
     10.   Increasing funding for land protection (outright purchase and easements.)

Each foregoing action relates to enhanced funding.
        While respondents perceive increased funding as “moderately important,”
        they think institutional, social and cultural actions are more important.

II. Though no Outdoors organization in Missouri was characterized as “ineffective” by
    respondents, only one organization was described as “very effective.” What are the
    institutional attributes and arrangements that make the Missouri Department of Conservation
    “very effective,” and to what extent might these attributes be advanced within other Outdoor
    institutional arrangements in the state?

III. Respondents characterized outdoor progress as “good” for:
     1.    Conserving plants, animals, and their habitats,
     2.    Supporting outdoor recreation,
     3.    Helping private landowners manage and enhance outdoor resources, and
     4.    Promoting healthy and sustainable forests.

           The fact that respondents did not assign “excellent” to any progress area
           reminds that “there’s always room for improvement” in Missouri’s Outdoors.

IV. Two priorities that Missouri’s Outdoor Leaders identified as warranting highest attention—and
    two priorities upon which they (and the public at large) might unite in common action—are:
     1. Protecting clean and healthy water, and
     2. Teaching Missourians about the importance of soil, water, fish, forests, wildlife and
        natural resources.

V. Missouri’s Outdoor Leaders most favor dedicated funding mechanisms for Outdoors services,
    facilities, and programming.
VI. Missouri’s Outdoor Leaders thought that the only “high barrier” to state resource
    management agencies improving the future of Missouri Outdoors was “elected officials’
Future of Missouri Outdoors, Leadership Survey                                              Page 28


    priorities.” This emphasizes the strong need among Outdoors Leaders and the Outdoors
    community to work more closely with elected officials, engaging them in practical ways in
    Missouri’s Outdoors, and educating them to the importance of the Outdoors to Missourians’
    quality of life.

VII. Respondents described the greatest threat to the future of Missouri Outdoors as,
     “Urbanization/development.” Indeed, Outdoor Leaders came very close to describing this
     threat as “extreme”—not just “high,” as was their appraisal on average. Yet, this is the very
     issue that Missouri and the nation seem incapable of addressing in any way that doesn’t
     prompt strident and vicious dialogue. How might this topic be engaged in Missouri in
     productive fashion?

Comment: Other Organizations & “Overall Effectiveness,” unedited
80% of the land in MO is in private hands---Landowner cooperation is vital to improvements

Agencies are based on the outdoors in mind, so I feel that they protect and enhance but there can always be more.
As a teacher I am only familiar with organizations that deal directly with schools.

c., g. Sometimes the outdoor industry and private landowners promote overuse and overdevelopment of some areas.
Some of Lake the Ozarks, for example, is too heavily used and built up to be considered enhancement of Missouri's
outdoors. Hwy. 76 commercial development at Branson has overwhelmed the former natural appeal of that area.
Subdivision and shopping center development in St. Louis, Kansas City and Springfield metro areas chews up large
tracts of open space. Redeveloping outdated housing in the older suburbs and core metro areas would be a better use
of land. Certainly modern highways are important to our state's economy and safety, but all government agencies and
private industry need to look at ways to provide housing, commercial opportunities and transportation that will preserves
Missouri's outdoor attractions and opportunities. We also need to protect our farmland, which is the basis of our food
supply, and continue efforts to improve protection of streams and groundwater.

Constant plus and minus.

Difficult to answer as all try to do good but some have wider base and stronger role in Missouri than others. All are
doing good things in regard to at least some aspects of conservation.

DU, as an individual organization, I believe to have been very effective in the areas they focus on.

Ducks Unlimited is the leading NGO

Effectiveness of agencies and organizations depends on the leadership they have, which can cnage over time.

Goverment agencies are too focused on red tape to actually get any broad scale differences made

Grassroots organizations seem most effective to me.

great variation among private landowners

I believe that greed in Federal politics has led to under-funding at that level

I cannot give more than moderately effective for any one group; some I have been kinder with. Effectiveness has gotten
better over that past 10 years, but communication between all stakeholders still needs to be the highest priority in an
effort to leverage all possibilities.

I would include fishing clubs/organizations and the James River Basin Partnership, Watershed Committee of the
Ozarks, etc. in "other."

Ignoring the needs and desires of private landowners undermines the willingness to cooperate.

Many MO. landowners are very effective at protecting and enhancing MO. outdoors but as a whole, with MO. emphasis
on production agriculture, become moderately ineffective - -Landowner programs have helped (especially purchased
easement programs - WRP, GRP) but the CRP program has not kept pace with commodity prices enticing many
participants to opt out sacrificing soil, water, and wildlife gains.

Comment: Other Organizations & “Overall Effectiveness,” unedited
Missouri Prairie Foundation

more integration would really help

Most federal agencies are too bureaucratic and politically motivated.

My answers should reflect that some of the organizations are more effective than others at within specific areas, not
necessarily overall.

NGO's moderately effective

Other Organizations category too broad...ratings range from highly effective to ineffective

Small entities such as the Missouri Prairie Foundation, Ducks Unlimited, and others have an important role to play but
are often over-looked.

Small NGO's such as Missouri Prairie Foundation and orgs like Missouri Native Plant Society are also involved.

The effectiveness of Fed. agencies such as the National Park Service are mixed. They try to do a good at the Arch
grounds in St. Louis but do very little to protect the Ozark National Riverways. Same with other Federal agencies.

There are many local,regionalgroups that are flying under the radar screen and accomplishing much good for Missouri
Outdoors. Some are affiliated with the larger entities that you mention, but not all. I think of a few of the following: Local
Park & Recreation Depts, Regional Greenway or Park agencies. The Missouri Parks Association, The Missouri Parks
and Recreation Assn, The Open Space Council, The Ozark Regional Land Trust, The LAD Foundation, The Meramec
River Recreation Assn., Mo. River Relief, The St. Louis & KC Zoo,Forest Park Forever. The list is huge, but I think that
you get the point.

too broad a category to evaluate

Unfortunatley it appears MoDNR has higher focus on economic interest rather than enforcement in protecting our
natural resources

Very large non-profits seem to spend most of their time talking to each other or their own membership or government
invested groups, but not to the Public or young people in their terms or to relate to their needs. Many of these groups,
private or government, seem -- into the recent past -- very elitist, and self perpetuating in primary purpose, like our lead
politicians seeking re-election. Public support and understanding has struck me as a "necessary chore" -- not the most
critical link in achieving what should be our common pride -- protecting and enhancing our Missouri Outdoors. Thanks to
the guaranteed tax support to the state for conservation, we are, none-the-less, leagues ahead of many other states. I
don't believe outdoor "industry" is a very reliable source of the Missouri Outdoors Health, if its protection interferes with
private profits. Same can be said of "political profits" for Missouri politicians in the not too distant past.

We're disappointed that the MDOC and USFS continue to support the concept of clear cutting.

We could have used a slightly effective category here. Private conservation groups don't seem to communicate much.
Conservation interests in Kansas City, St. Louis and the medium-sized cities stand silent on issues that are before state
and federal legislatures, while a narrowly-focused farm lobby pummels legislators into believing they represent the
state's majority view.

--DNR's clean water program is essentially worthless and a joke. Integrity must be restored to this program. --
Relatedly, the lack of spine demonstrated by some agencies is shameful. Considering its pedigree especially, the
NPS should be ashamed of what it allows to happen at the ONSR. --Something must be done to increase the focus
on public land acquisition. Missouri has relatively little public land and yet there seems to be a great political fear of
additional acquisitions. Public lands are one of the things future generations will thank us most for. --Missouri
unfortunately lacks large foundations that take an interest in conservation. This makes a huge difference as
compared to other states since our non-profits here are relatively depauperate. This could potentially be changed
with the right leadership. --Support of land conservation by TNC and land trusts could also produce tremendous
results.
-a comprehensive (anyone with trails open to the public) trail review and long term plan is necessary. -agencies
should not listen to the few people when changing regulations or management -agencies need to concentrate on
their legal mandate and not worry about politics (i.e. trying to make everyone like you and be your friend)
-Availability of additional state and federal agency funds to support restoration of urban greenspaces and rural
landowner conservation efforts, to include a focus on youth education. -Involvement of municipal staff in local
conservation efforts as part of professional expectations/obligations -Recognition of the importance of outdoor
classrooms in school curriculum reflected in MO Grade Level Expectations -More support from state agencies and
academic institutions for on-site research and monitoring of restoration projects
-Improve communication/education to urban and suburban dwellers about outdoor resources in Missouri -Improve
knowledge of State elected officials of the positive financial impacts outdoor users provide in Missouri so they will
back off of trying to "run" the state agencies responsible for these resources -Improve curriculum offers for educators
so they can meet the requirements of "No Child Left Behind" and provide an outdoor message as well -Increase
salary offerings for state employees in the resource manangement agencies so they can compete with the private
sector for the limited number of applicants for resource management positions -Require state-run colleges and
universities to be more willing to promote careers in natural resource management
*NEED CONTINUED EMPHASIS ON PARTNERING (PRIVATE, GROUPS, GOV'T, LEGISLATIVE) TO
ACCOMPLISH GOALS *CONTINUED AND EXPANDED EDUCATION OF PUBLIC *CONTINUED AND EXPANDED
PROJECTS WITH PRIVATE LANDOWNERS FOR PUBLIC AND RESOURCE BENEFIT *CONTINUED AND
EXPANDED EFFORTS AT EDUCATING AND INFLUENCING LEGISLATORS *BETTER COORDINATION OF

MORE EFFICIENTLY AT GETTING RESULTS
1. Greater coverage by news media of key outdoors topics and issues. 2. Reaching out to various youth
organizations to involve them in activities relating to conservation and the outdoors.
1. Increased and integrated efforts, among organizations and individuals, to advertise and promote the relationship of
nature and the outdoors to the quality of life and economic foundation of Missouri. This can be accomplished by
coordinated advertising with a common series of messages using a variety of media, including print, radio, television,
and Internet. Blogs and social media could reach new audiences and younger age groups. 2. Highlight and promote
the jobs and tasks of outdoor, natural resource, and conservation workers to increase trust and awareness of what
these people do for the outdoors and nature. 3. Missourians have long supported the outdoors and conservation
efforts--but the majority don't seem to have a very specific knowledge or participate in the outdoors. I don't believe
more people need to participate, but they need more awareness of nature.
1. More unified and collaborative approach to conservation, among agencies, NGO's, stakeholders 2. More focused
prioritization on the geographies of irreplaceable resources, rather than statewide programs open to all. 3. Strong
disincentives for conservation-inappropriate production practices, including loss of federal ag support 4. Stringent
water quality protectionms (surface and subsurface waters) and zealous enforcement. 5. Unified commitment among
processors, state, and Federal agencies for sustainable forestry and certification.
1. Must find a way for outdoor programs to compete wiht myriad of other activities competing for young peoples time
and attention. 2. Establish outdoor, fishing or hunting clubs in schools 3. Introduce competitive fishing as a high
school sport 4. Must find ways to link quality outdoors and outdoor experiences with quality of life.
1. Attain a better balance between staffing and funding and redirect staff to meet changing resource needs and
public interests. 2. Ensure that agencies reflect citizen diversity both in workforce composition and interest in natural
resources.

“What are your ideas and strategies (for example, additional resources, programs, management
models) for ensuring the future quality of Missouri Outdoors?” unedited
A better informed public Marketing of conservation messages Tax laws that reward good stewardship and
conservation of natural resources Increased use of conservation easements to protect rural landscapes from
fragmentation Make conservation economical for landowners by developing markets for ecosystem services and
other "conservation products"
A collaborative approach is very important. Overlaps of common interests between specific interest groups and
organizations need to be taken advantage of. Outdoor awareness and introduction to the outdoor world need to be
included in public and private education, particularly in the elementary grades.
A strong and clear plan is needed, much as the "Design for Conservation" provided for the Dept. of Conservation
many years ago. With a good strategic plan, a sound vision, and a well-conceived and aggressive communication
effort, the citizens of the state, probably led by our outdoor organizations, can mobilize and get something done. It
will take strong, effective leadership from all parts of the state to make this happen, but it is possible. I'd be glad to do
whatever I could to advance the cause. Thanks.
Additional funding and less regulation of the state agencies responsible for developing these resources.
Additional funding opportunities for MDC - Design for Conservation is now approximately 30-40 years old. Grass
Roots campaign for addtional funding.
Additional resources directed toward management of existing Public lands,acquisition of additional public lands in
key habitats and watersheds, conservation work in watersheds to protect streams, establishment of private land
trusts to help protect against sprawl and loss of agricultural lands.
Additional resources open the door to new possibilities to enhance wildlife conservation.

All things considered, what is currently being done is probably the best under the circumstances.
Although Missouri is probably better off than most, hunter retention and recruitment is still a concern. The design for
conservation sales tax is obviously an important funding mechanism that helps pay for operating costs of the agency
but the amount consumptive users contribute is still half the pot. I believe that outdoor education is vitally important
and once again the agency does a great job of providing information to those that take the initiative to seek it.
Unfortunately, in many cases this amounts to preaching to the choir. To reach the masses I think that efforts should
be put into place to incorporate conservation and outdoor education as part of the mandatory science cirriculum. We
would probably recruit more hunters and at the very least, accurately educate our future leaders what conservation is
all about and that the dollars that pay for it didn't fall from the sky. People tend to be more supportive of what they
clearly understand.
Any way we look at it, we cannot ignore the YOUTH component in this important endeavor. Our youth hold the future
to what we are formulating here. The Youth of today will eventually be the ones who will be in responsible positions
to implement the very things that we are formulating (I am looking long term down the road). Therefore we need to
educate them, mentor them, and help them understand the importance of what we are up to. We need to start NOW
getting them involved in our campaign, get them OUTDOORS, and teach them some things that they WILL NOT
learn from books. And most of all, teach them that the OUTDOORS is not something to be afraid of. The URBAN
and SUBURBAN youth components of our population are extremely important to the success of whatever we decide
the priorities are for MISSOURI OUTDOORS. Their numbers completely overwhelm the total youth population. Long-
term, we are preparing to set the stage for some great things to come. At least we hope so. And we are going to
need their support and participation.
As for government, we should strive to make it more efficient with less redundant reporting,accountability and red
tape that is expensive and counter productive. We have reached critical mass with regard to accountability and
associated diminishing returns. Also, it seems that the average citizen is no longer excited about the outdoors, even
if they are participants in outdoor activities. We must find a way to excite the public about outdoor issues and
acheivements again. This needs to be done in a positive way and at all levels of age and culture. We need a new
spark! For the most part, we do not need more laws or bigger government here in Missouri. We just need to make
better and more efficient use of the many resources that we have.
At the present I don't have,an answer..
Both history and recent happenings teach us well that conservation only happens via people. Informed and educated
people. Missouri has been a leader in citizen-led conservation but note I use a past tense here. Future actions and
strategies must embrace this concept or risk isolation and limited success. To that end we need to: Change
agency culture and traditons at a rate sufficient to meet the changing desires and traditions of the public. Ensure
there is relevance in what we as agencies do to the concerns/desires of the public.(meet the customer where they
are not where we want them to be) Seriously ask and answer the question what does a successful conservation

model look like in 10 years and HOW are we going to get there? Retain, and promote a model where all citizens
support conservation .... financially.    Create - via strategic promotion - a sense of pride in the conservation legacy
of our state. If Missouri were #1 in roads you bet we would hear about it from MODOT. NGO's and Industry can - and
should- help immensly here. Aggressively promote and market through the Outdoor industry and NGO partners
(from hunting/fishing to biking/birding)the values of conservation to quality of life and a sound Missouri ECONOMIC
base. Integrate "conservation" into required subject matter for all Missouri students, just as each student has to take
a government section in 4th or 5th grade (may be off on grade here)
Both the general public and elected leaders need to better understand and know more about many, if not all, of the
issues addressed in this survey. Both state and federal agencies need to improve and better prioritize what they do.
More resources are needed in many cases.
Building a stronger Teaming With Wildlife Coalition and developing a strategic plan to keep core coalition partners
involved and effective in their actions.
Certainly instilling (and expanding) a conservation ethic in our youth is critical to the future quality of our resources,
but increasing the numbers of those that hunt, fish or otherwise use the outdoors is needed, too. Attending to those
resources that are declining at a rapid rate...clean water, aquatic and terrestrial habitats around urban areas,
biodiversity as a whole...are also needed.
Children and education should play a large role in the future of our resources. We need caring individuals with ideas
to share to step up and let their voice be noticed. Continue supporting various conservation organizations. As for the
state and federal offices, I think they need to make a bigger effort in letting the public know of the various topics they
are working on and potentially getting the public involved in their activities. Positive reinforcement in how important
our conservation efforts are crucial.
Citizens need to understand the importance of promoting and maintaing the quality of Missouri outdoors. Not enough
understand the critical role a quality outdoors plays in their everyday lives.
Concentrate hiring on people who participate in outdoor sports.
Conservation agencies need to find ways to become more relevant to our public. We need to find ways to market to
both rural and urban people in Missouri. I think it will be critical for agencies like the Missouri Department of
Conservation to re-focus staff, programs and the limited resources to the most important things (consumptive and
non-consumptive uses). This will require MDC to drop some programs and pull back into their original mission and
mandate. This will not be popular as we are now attempting to be everything to everyone. We need to be aware of
that.
Continue and increase support of land trust work and conservation easements, get more MDC staff to use the Kenda
Flores and Rob Pulliam model in the Ozarks, increase funding for conservation practices, get the state to start
monitoring and enforceing the conservation easements on the meramec (protect this "public" resource before it is
lost).
Continue to protect the 1/8th cent sales tax for the Conservation Department. Continue to attract fine people to serve
on the Conservation Federation Board.
Continued dedicated funding for natural sesources in Missouri; Increased efforts to understand public needs and
desires from outdoors; Increased efforts to educate (communicate) with the public regarding the importance of the
outdoors for the economy and quality of life; Increased partnerships and collaboration between stae and federal
agencies and NGOs in all aspects of resource management and public outreach related to resource (outdoor) issues;
Increased efforts by outdoors industries to support public use infrastructure and to help instill outdoor ethics in
customers/clients; Options to address shortening length of land ownership and fragmentation and parcelization of
land in Missouri (this could include favorable property tax treatment for maintaining natural, working land cover and
tax disincentives for developing once natural lands; improved and diverse markets for recreational use of private
lands and eco-services provided by managed natural lands, improved use of green design in developments.
Create state level fundign to match federal funding programs. Get the elected officials on board Allow professionals
to do their job with out policitial agendas from above. MDC/MDNR/NRCS
Do not abandon science as the foundation of all conservation efforts; push for increased priority for training wildlife
professionals at MU; increase involvement of all constituents!!!
double the state sales tax for conservation and parks and soils
Ear-marked funds. More public lands. Programs to get youth outdoors. Public education on conservation.
Economy of action will be paramount to the application of strategic plans to improve Missouri Outdoors. With money
becoming tighter and more money being spent on social programs of big cities we must skillfully train all field
personnel employed by our state, those volunteering in support, and those private organizations that assist in the

overall development of these programs. Our main thrust must be education of "Missouri Outdoor Users." This is
everyone from the weekend hunter or fisherman to the full-time agribusiness land owner, including those that do not
regurlarly or actively participate in outdoor activities but appreciate the ourdoors or can be encouraged to participate
in more Missouri Outdoor activities. The appreciation of all taxpayers must be our goal, but the education and training
of those "where the rubber meets the road" will ensure continued support monitarily and actively. We must spend
wisely of our time and money to be effective.
Educate people and get them in to the outdoors so that they have a vested interest in what happens to it.
Educating Missouri's youth as to the importance of the outdoors - exposing them to the joy and benefits of outdoor
activities including hunting and fishing - Get them away from the TV and computer.
Educating the next gerneration is key, getting the message into schools. Engaging families as a whole
Education and communication are the keys to enlightening the elected officials and citizens of the state to support
future levels of quality of Missouri Outdoors.
Education and outreach to citizens need to step up and establishing a network of non-government leaders willing to
get involved and engage the public in their areas is strongly needed. Citizen groups need to work closely with state
and federal agencies and engage legislators and elected officials to urge/encourage attention and funding to issues.
State and Federal agency staff are best suited to offer information, knowledge, technical expertise and advice. The
challenges (due to growing population and prolifereation of ownerships on the landscape mean that government will
not be able to stay big enough to take care of all the needs. The informed/motivated public needs to increasingly
work in tandem with government agencies to figure out and implement ways to conserve the resources. Locally-led
citizen groups (county based might be best - to impact other things that happen at the county level and feed to state
level) linked with an NGO entity like the Conservation Federation could become a powerful force in a time in which
such is needed.
Education in Conservation efforts and the importance of clean, safe water for the general public. Programs and
funding to make progress in these areas.
Education is still the key. We must educate our landowners and youth so they understand how their decisions affect
habitat and the environment.
Education of current and future generations regarding the value of outdoor quality, and its relationship to their
personal health and economy is essential. Then, tapping their understanding in such a manner so the will to improve
and necessary funding is increased. (Small task, eh?)
Education of the citizens of Missouri of what is needed, I feel it is critical to ensuring funding for programs. If we can
get the average person to understand what the problem is, than half the battle is won. Insuring that partnerships
between agencies and others so efforts are not duplicated is also critical.
Education of the youth to appreciate the outdoors by creating a connection and respect for our natural resources.
Most Missourians who spend time outdoors appreciate what we have and those that don't were never taught the
value of our state's ecosystem. The general public, if they have no connection with nature, is in the dark regarding
the delicate balance between all things and what can be so easily lost.
Education, as always, is the key. The general public needs to be constantly informed about how crucial habitat is to
wildlife and how that in turn affects us. People like me who are outdoors observing plants and animals and who read
and talk with informed people about the outdoors aren't the ones who need reached....sorta like "preaching to the
choir." Simple things like leaving a brushy fencerow or leaving filtering strips can help in each little corner of the
world and that is a start. To me, farmers as a whole are the hardest to reach when it comes to enhancing wildlife
habitat but I do know great strides have been made in stopping soil erosion. Funds for CRP, WRP, etc. are the key to
that and need to be kept. Also, we need to be sure that the 1/8th and 1/10% taxes stay AS THEY NOW ARE and that
those funds not be sluffed off into the "General Fund."
Education, communication, training and access at all levels of community, state, federal is critical. Throwing
additional money and staff will not solve the issue of connecting people to the outdoors, making them aware,
appreciate and conserve its quality. Aggressive marketing to the general public to choose an individual or
family/friends activity in the outdoors is essential (right next to baseball, soccer, football, dance, etc); back that
aggressive marketing with on the ground programs, events and information on places to go for the disinterested,
disengaged to curious and avidly engaged. State and federal agencies cannot do it alone with staff or funding, but
they have the tools to leverage partnerships with local businesses, groups, schools, landowners and ngo's to help
conduct programs and events. "Missouri Outdoors" 101 for elected officials, corporate and small businesses on a
repeated basis will help to bring a level of awareness and appreciation for the current status and needs of Missouri
Outdoors. If you target no other group, target a comprehensive environmental education program for public, private

and paraochial students preschool-college that covers all aspects of awareness, appreciation, understanding and
action. That includes colleges, universities and community colleges who have teacher education certification. They
need to have the knowledge and skills to deliver. Then, at every level of their formal education experience, they are
being exposed to and learning about what it takes to ensure that the qualaity of Missouri Outdoors is not lost for their
generation. Action is the key, but action with a reason based on knowledge, skills and a development of critical
thinking will produce a citizenry who cares, because they know.
Elected officials must place higher priority on those agencies for which they budget; appointed officials in all agencies
must put the quality of the resources ahead of their personal and retirement goals, with a major stress on
conservation education for ALL Missouri citizens. This effort must retain the traditional (consumptive) base while
reaching out to the non-traditional (non-consumptive). Also, the agencies should be totally open to the public
involving goals, objectives, efforts, challenges, successes, failures, budgets, etc.
Engage Missourians in a manner that demonstrates the value of Missouri outdoors to them - it has to be relevant to
each individual. Missourians will support what they see as adding to their quality of life. COnsider redirecting efforts
from the traditional model of production landowners to a greater balance with role of recreational landowners in mind
- the strategies for engagement will be entirely different. Beware of applying the perception and perspectives that got
us here in the context of 2010 socienty and culture. Also beware of too great an emphasis on youth as a "silver
bullet" - while this ultimately is critical, mentors must be a major part of the equation. Regardless of the initiatives
employed, evaluate them.
Enhance funding for identified Conservation Opportunity Areas with more private involvement
Ensuring that all Missourian's recognize the importance of conservation to their daily lives. A tall order for many
constituents!
Ensuring the quality of Missouri Outdoors is the responsibility of the individual citizen. All state and federal
organizations, working together, can be moderately successful in keeping quality of air, water, soils at near present
levels. Improving the quality of our "outdoors" will require the involvment of one or more members of every family. All
will need to be involved with some non-governmental organization, doesn't matter which one, if we are to ensure and
improve the quality of Missouri Outdoors.
Environmental education should become a higher priority for resource agencies.
Evaluate all user fees and determine where there may be opportunities for new funds. I think about a bike stamp or
small user fee for the use of a high maintenance cost facility like the Katy Trail. Charge a small fee for a subscription
to the Missouri Conservationist Magazine. Maybe exempt seniors or youth ?? Earmark the funds for a popular
outdoors program or project. Pass a tax incentive transfer program for conservation easements such as Colorado
has in place. For those that do not need the deduction it may encourage other to place conservation easements on
their land. Not popular I know, but if there are to be no new taxes consider a service fee to make landowner visits to
cove rtravel cost. Private industry does it for heating, cooling, electrical service calls, etc. Partner more with other
local groups or NGO's there is a weath of resources there that are not being tapped. Why not help empower them
rather that increasing the cost and size of government. Everthing does not have to be about control !!!
Expand partnerships between MDC and other NGO's. Improved PR with individuals and groups particularly with
farmers and rural interests.

Face destructiveness and abuse from overuse now and projected near future from overexposure by marketing
media; state population and outstate tourist increased use (eg, "The Last 10 'Best Places'"); recreational uses that
quickly become destructive at current and future loads, such as 'casual boating'; snowmobiling;
fishing/hunting/camping/campers/bus tours, despite commerical value. It is time to limit by very hefty fees or priory
ticketing public access, as well as construction and chip-making to large parts of "Missouri Outdoors", or continue
killing, eg.,Lake of the Ozarks, it with LUVE, and unregulated, private profit "development" -- today's euphemism for
Missouri Outdoors Destruction. Strong urgency to public school education at all levels, but particularly in grade
school. Specifics: allow school rooms to possess (and collect) common native birds nest specimens and discarded
egg shells for children to see everyday, eg, a robin's nest (Visible and abandoned in winter, and an adventure and joy
to try to see in Spring.)Re-institute for grade schoolers visits to working farms (and perhaps they should go inside a
"factory" farm, too.)and orchards, and locks with working barges, and single weekend "away camp" during warm
weather school year for an entire school class; and "Fresh Air" camps, such as those for years in New York and
elsewhere, for our City kids who only know pigeons and weeds growing through concrete. Any and all without IPods,
Blackberries, computers, TV, Radio, Telephone. Parents to waivers from lawsuit to common and natural occurences
such as poison ivy, mosquitoes, ticks, chiggers, normal homesickness and boogey-man, ghost stories, or other true
"camp out" "risk". Firsthand,careful, knowledgeable and loving exposure to the beauties and realities of Nature in a
well structured experience is irreplaceable education to the good of Outdoor Missouri. Shooting something dead for
fun, isn't. (Leave that to adults!) Reinstate a teenage Conservation Corps for summer months -- plant beneficial trees,
shrubs, flowers and vines along our highways and thoroughfares, preferably adapted to local (now changing)
weather conditions and of a type that provides food shelter to wildlife, eg, fruit and berries and nectar and nuts, and
smaller seed. Encourage same to be planted in all neighborhoods, corporate campuses, church grounds,
schoolgrounds and provide educational materials and municipal services for same.
First, DNR's only priority should be to protect the "outdoors". The agency should be cleansed of personnel who put
their friends in industry ahead of the outdoors. Second, MDC needs to get over its reluctance to hold conservation
easements. Third, more science needs to be taught in K-12. Sound scientific reasoning results in better stewardship
of the outdoors. If this means having dedicated science teachers for K-6, then so be it. Most of the K-6 teachers I've
met don't have a clue about science and math. Every school should have an "outdoors" classroom. Forth, the rural
electrical coops should be under the same regulation as investor owned utilities. These folks are just plain backwards
when it comes to pollution and renewable energy. Their regulatory status shields them from pressures to join this
century.
Folks at the upper level of administration must have a vision. Agency's must plan workload assessments 10 - 15
years into the future. We can no longer have year to year vision. Workload assessmenet needs to be a priority!
Funding, size of work force and public education are all critical to the future of conservation. More money, more staff
and more public support could take the conservation movement in Missouri to another level - and could help
guarantee a sustainable future for all of Missouri's natural resource treasures.
Funds must continue to be matched with NGO's and other groups/organizations at an even larger scale in order for a
win/win model to be displayed. With matching funds much more can be achieved by everyone involved. If funds and
matched and groups work together the possibilities are endless.
Give much more support to programs like the MO Stream Team.
Governor-appted taskforce to address the top environmental/natural resource issues facing our state; media/public
education campaign addressing MO's top environmental issues (as determined by CFM effort or governor's
taskforce) such as water quality. Work on incorporating additional environmental education requirements into
curriculum standards.
Greater education and involvement of citizens in the outdoors Greater support from the State Legislature Additioal
funding from some source or sources Focus more resources on the private landowner both personnel and funded

recognize that leased hunting and other commercialization will come to Missouri as in other states Expand resources

Grew up in the Adirondacks of New York. Spent time in Illinois, Colorado, Idaho. Three of these states have always
been active managers of their resources. Missouri is doing a good job, every staff person I have met has been
dedicated and hardworking. Having spent time in a federal agency, I would also say that the Missouri employees are
burdened by layers of review. If a priority action list is created and committed to, the employees should be allowed to
act quickly when it is clearly in the best interest of the state (as already set forth on that priority list that everyone had
time to vet). I know that this is simple to suggest and more difficult to implement. What I am suggesting is that you

treat protection of Missouri's gems as if it were a critical time management issue also. And, of course, we must
continue to focus on children -- they will be the taxpayers and environmental protectors or abusers of the future. And,
in the meantime, they can directly influence th e actions of their parents. Again, I'm sure your staff knows all of this.
I believe highest priority to protecting the future of our natural resource quality should be focused on obtaining and
establishing more land protection focused on easements and land trust
I believe MDC is an excellent organization, and while their publications show more attention is being given to the
environment, the hook and lead culture within the organization is still to heavy, and I don't see any really push to
change or adjust the culture. DNR, and Parks are way to politicized, and are underfunded, and their culture is either
weakened by funding or by political agenda that are not of the best interest of the environment, or it's citizens.
I believe that success comes when we connect Missourians to the outdoors. If we don’t find a way to make the
outdoors an important part of children’s and people's lives, all the work we do is irrelevant. I think that the most
important thing to do is make sure that Missourians find the outdoors valuable and important and educate lawmakers
on the importance of conservation and outdoor related issues.
I believe we need better use of field agents, state and federal in ENFORCING existing laws and regulations (see Q7-
b)... We need to put more financial resources into state & federal programs to bring them to their full potential. Lack
of proper funding is for me, the biggest detriment to successful environmental initiatives in the state. These include
water protection and best management practices for Missouri's timber lands. Developing more educational programs,
and supporting existing programs should be a higher priority, both on the state and federal level.
I feel first the politicians need to be educated that the natural resources (particularly water) is not infinite. Already the
extreme southwest portion of MO (Joplin especially) is realizing that their supply of clean drinking water will run out in
less than 10 years. Springfield has a longer span than that, but is looking at possibilities now. A collaborative with
Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Missouri is being formed to try to solve this problem. Also, Missouri's legislature
must make us a water rights state, instead of the free use of ground and surface water that now exists.
I feel that the Missouri Department of Conservation needs to put more effort/resources into educating the public.
Missouri's conservation legacy is still one of the best kept secrets. Production of the "Missouri Outdoors" television
program for example, should not have been discontinued. It had a growing following and was continually recognised
as being one of the best programs of it's kind in the country.
I feel very strongly that increased funding will be necessary in the coming years to just to maintain the quality of the
Missouri Outdoors we presently have. If we want to improve the quality, the increase in funds becomes even more
critical. So what do we do to increase funds?? Maybe we find a way to collect sales tax (which is crucial to
conservation in Missouri)on internet sales which presently escapes being collected. I suspect internet sales will keep
on climbing! From here, I don't have too many good ideas to increase funding. So without increases, conservation
will need to look at what they are doing and use their funds where they get the most bang for their buck!
I greatly appreciate you taking the time to conduct this survey. The questions are very good and I look forward to
seeing the results as well as a vision of the path forward where I and other citizens of Missouri can assist. Thank you
again!
I think Land Trusts should be funded at local and state level; conservation easements should be encouraged; TV
adds targeted to the beauty of Missouri need to be aired to increase awareness of Urban and rural voters; school
programs dealing with conservation/water quality shold be developed and taken into all age levels including senior
recreation facilities to promote greater understanding of the problems and workings of air and water on lands and
forests. the program that helped farmers set aside lands for wildlife should be continued. Boot the education wing of
each agency and collaborate with all interested agencies - band together with them to share funds and projects. Look
at MOBCI for example.
I think the laws are in place to protect the environment but the enforcement is not. I also think that education is the
best tool that we have at our disposal to change and protect. Most people don't even know the extent of the Land
Owner Assistance program and what they can gain from it. Teach the kids and they will teach the parents.
I think we need to quite purchasing land and spend more time educating the land owners and the average citizens.
Through education we can develop a more healthy environment for future generations to live with.
I would like to see a more concentrated, focused effort to actively engage and educate the private landowners in
Missouri. Considering that private landowners control something like 97-98% of the land in the state, they are the one
single group that has in reality the greatest impact on all aspects of our natural environment. I think there is a great
opportunity for MDC and for that matter MU Extension to greatly enhance their programs for farmers and
landowners. I think these programs should be taken directly to the landowners rather than waiting for the landowner
to come to them for help or assistance. MDC and Extension could hold open meeting and seminars at community

colleges, high schools, church auditoriums across the state to proactively reach out in an effort to increase the level
of landowner fluency in natural resource stewardship. I'm amazed at the high levels of anecdotal bad information
drives the land management practices of many farmers and landowners. Their attitude in many cases is "Hell, that's
what grandpop and dad did so I know that's the way it ought to be done". As a group, private landowners need sound
solid science-based information on forest management, native grasses to replace fescue pastures, stream and
wetland management, habitat restoration, and the list can go on. Use the format of open meeting seminars to intrigue
landowners with sound information and, after a period of time, many private landowners will become converts and
many cases will seek out direct MDC and Extension assistance in determining how to improve their lands. Its
interesting how effective the MDC town hall meetings on antler point restrictions were in making converts of mostly
ridgid farmers to the benefits of taking a pass on shooting a buck with less than 4 points on one side. In the area of
Franklin County where I own land, I know the locals would tar and feather anyone who would violate the point
restriction. Why, because they respect MDC and have come to value the solid knowledge based info MDC brings to
the table. And they really appreciated that MDC came to them in the form of open town hall style meetings to present
the details of the new deer hunting program they wanted to implement. We have a great state with great natural
resources, but the private landowner base needs to reached more effectively with sound science-based
environmental stewardship info so they, the private landowner, can become more e
I would like to see the earmarked taxes become exempt from any further encroachment attempts by the legislature.
Also let the agencies do their jobs.
I would like to somehow figure out a way to tell if we really have odor issues or if people just do not like the location
of something so they complain about odor.
Improved education on imortance of natural resources to overall quality of life.
In my opinion, the biggest issue is the increasing disconnect between our citizens and the outdoors. The vast
majority of societal trends are encouraging our society to become more urban, more technology-dominated and more
materialistic. Without a doubt, traditional uses of the outdoors are giving way to less-traditional uses. The traditional
outdoor community needs to embrace some of the newer non-traditional and typically non-consumptive outdoor
activities. We all need to do a better job of marketing the recreational opportunities that are available to Missourians
through partnerships between agencies, organizations, non-government groups, municipalities and the outdoor
recreation industry.
In many respects Missouri has an excellent management model. Progress is being made developing relationships
with individual landowners, and programs through state and particularly the federal government are helping. In my
view the biggest impediment is the political clout held by the Farm Bureau and its influence over rural legislators.
Inability to reach audiences effectively indicates we need more up-to-date surveys of citizenry to understand how
they get their information, and how we can tap into it. Would be good to have social survey/human dimensions staff
working regularly on these issues (more $$ and more of this type of staff). We should be regularly monitoring and
evaluating various programs to understand their level of effectiveness from the outcome standpoint, then adapting
program staff time and dollars to be most effective. If/when "carbon credit dollars" become available to states, each
state must be ready and able to spend the dollars, since this would be a potentially large increase to a state budget -
need to prepare now to ensure we can hit the ground running when the revenues are available.
Incentive programs for private lands around significant focus areas. Increased funding to support granting programs
(Missouri Bird Conservation Intiative). Better communication between conservation-minded partner agencies,
organizations and private citizens.
Increase resources for protecting and managing internationally important bird areas. Increase grants to schools and
non-profits that provide nature study education and materials to schools, and to schools for landscaping for wildlife.
Hire regional ornithologists. Consider linking with universities for accredited conservation studies or coursework at
agencies and online in areas where no wildlife degree programs are offered.
Increased education in K-12, more opportunities for outdoor learning experience.
Increased enforcement of regulations for clean water and air. Correct use of federal lands for forestry, farming as well
as recreation. More easements for hunting and fishing access insteead of purchase of private land.
Increased participation at the elementary and secondary education levels by state agencies is vital. We need to
teach these young minds the importance of managing these vital resources, as well as the importance of outdoor
recreation in their lives.
Increased partnerships between state conservation organizations, other conservation entities and private landowners
is essential for improving habitat quality and quantity in the future. Possibly provide incentive funds to private

“What are your ideas and strategies (for example, additional resources, programs, management

Increased public/private partnerships focused on developing innovative programs in a difficult budgetary climate
(especially at fed level.) Missourians ourselves will have to decide whether protecting our lands in a priority for the
21rst century.
Increased understanding and support for Missouri outdoors by the general public elected officials at the federal,
state, and local levels of government.
insulate regulatory bodies from individual legislators and political agendas incorporate outdoor experiences into
parents as teachers training set up a position in economic development that fosters a sustainability mindset in the
business community institute a legislator education program - how natural resources and ecological processes
underpin their district's economoy and health (make the connection's explicit)- do this separately from lobbying for a
particular issue get ngo's to develop an annual report card on the state's environmental health and publish it - a quick
easy way to compare us to surrounding states
It is critical that we address the fact that each subsequent generation has a less meaningful connection to nature.
Where the world's environmental health goes - so goes Missouri's. It is all connected - the big picture does matter.
It is essential for state and federal agencies to supply funding to non-profit organizations who have experience in this
field. Those non profits must partner with hunting and fishing and trapping organizations to foster better stewardship
programs for th is great state. It is time to move environmental education and outdoor experiences into the
mainstream of educational opportunities for all students throughout the state. The only key to the future is education
and explaining that conservation is not a philosophy but a way of life. Utilizing live birds and other animals is the best
way to do this. In fact it is the only way to do this but by non profits doing it it removes the stigma of state and federal
oversight out of the picture and people are more open to listening and learning. Let us do the work for those agencies
which will foster and enhance the general public’s attitudes and feelings for our wild world. We must supply them with
a window to the world of wildlife and explain how it is all related to our daily lives. The time to act is NOW.
It is imperative that the state have a comprehensive plan to address climate change that incorporates the
interconnectedness of health, conservation of energy, renewable resources and waste reduction leading to a
sustainable future.
Its one thing to procure more property, but lets improve what we have. give the public more opportunities.
keep Missourians informed at every step of the way with how they can help, how bad/god the situation is, what will
happen if we don't take care of the outdoors
Keep the legislature away from the MDC.
Less emphasis on hunting and fishing, more on habitat preservation and restoration, especially for threatened
species. Need for a big idea: for example, creation of a 200,000 acre prairie/savanna preserve, managed and
operated for environmental values, recreation, and tourism -- an American Serengeti, with all or most of the 19th
Century wildlife restored and protected, with associated visitor's centers, outdoor real-life museums with 19th Century
villages and stage stops and hands-on environmental science experiences, etc.
Let land owners determine what they want and how thier land is to be used
Making information about environmental issues accessible to the general public. We need to create opportunities for
the general public to experience the outdoors in a pleasant and non-threatening way. People who use, appreciate
and love a resource are more open to maintaining that resource. But the opportunities have to start where people live
and where they are comfortable. We cannot expect them to venture far afield initially.
Many current threats to the quality of Missouri Outdoors require increased, more careful attention from the MO Dept.
of Natural Resources. For example: (1) MDNR's decision, announced initially in 2006, to accept the EPA's plan to
leave radioactive wastes in the MO River floodplain -- upstream from drinking water intakes for North St. Louis
County and the City of St. Louis -- is an indication that MDNR lacks the requisite, strong commitment to protect our
state's land, water, and air resources. (2) The decision to permit Ameren to build another dam at Taum Sauk is of
concern. And related to that, the state should ask Ameren to give its Church Mountain property to the MO State Park
system. (3) The lack of effort on MDNR's part to raise important questions about Ameren's plan to build a second
nuclear reactor in Callaway County is also disappointing. No location may ever be found where the radioactive
wastes from the existing reactor can be isolated from the human biosphe re, or the wastes that would be generated
by the proposed Unit Two. --- Also, the state should be working to get the seven remaining wilderness areas in MO
designated as part of the Natl. Wilderness Preservation System. And the state should encourage the National Park
Service to have the management of the Ozark National Scenic Riverways better reflect Natl. Park Service standards
of preservation and wise use.
Missouri already is a model for conservation management. The key is retaining what we have -- dedicated funding
from the sales tax, retaining good people, keeping our support base from the public.

Missouri citizenry, especially private landowners, are interested in properly managing their natural resources, but
many of them lack the technical expertise or ability to implement best management practices on the Missouri
landscape. More professional field staff (biologists, foresters, etc.) are needed to work with these people. It's also
imperative that the private sector, through local businesses, get involved in helping implement and install land
management practices on private land.
Missouri Conservation Agency has lots of money. They should promote conservation programs at other agencies. ie.
compost use on highway construction projects.
Missouri conservation leaders should create open dialog with focus of identifying main conservation goals (top 5) to
be addressed during next 10 years. Once identified, conservation stakeholders (ranging from individuals to
organizations to agencies) could clearly understand their role to ensuring success--everyone "pulling" in the same
direction to reach state conservation goals. These goals, and corresponding challenges to be addressed, could then
be openly communicated to the public. Education efforts and other services/programs could be evaluated for
effectiveness. Citizens should receive services/programs that instill the value and importance of Missouri's Outdoors.
A solid understanding by citizens is essential for developing a commitment able to advance conservation to the next
level. The potential to advance conservation to the "next level" within Missouri is high given citizen interest, diverse
conservation stakeholder groups, past track record; however, steps must be taken to ensure communication among
groups is improved and duplication of services minimized while agressively building on existing partnerships to
increase effectiveness. (Conservation leaders must always remain aware of citizen's desires and expectations
regarding Misssouri's Outdoors.)
Missouri has an awesome Dept. of Conservation (MDC). It is imperative that the citizens of Missouri are provide the
opportunity to experience Missouri' great outdoors and this will come through educating the children of this state of
these assets that are within our forest, praries and rivers. If we fail to educate and inform and allow our distractors to
minimize the efforts of MDC we will be like so many other states, "just getting by". There are 49 other states that
would love to be where Missouri is today. We must preserve and enchance this position. Additional revenue sources
must be tapped to do more for the state and MDC. The long term reward falls in the memories we have and those of
future generations, of what a great state this is and the assets/resources that are being saved for generations to
come.
Missouri’s hunters and fishermen have been the traditional front-runners in the development and funding of
conservation programs. It is understandable that future efforts in promoting conservation include a more diverse
cross-section of the citizenry; however, considerable effort must be made to insure continued support of the hunters
and fishermen. It is widely recognized throughout the outdoor community that mentoring new participants is the key
to recruitment and retention. Missouri needs to become the ‘far-and-away’ leader in the field of mentoring new
participants in every aspect of outdoor activity. It will be these new particpants who ensure the future.
Mo is very fortunate to have adequate resources, programs & management models. We are the envy of the nation in
our resources. We need to keep doing a good job with what we have now and work hard to not loose our dedicated
funding.
More and better enabling legislation. Changing culture of agencies. Expanding outreach to more citizens beyond the
traditional hunting/fishing communities.
More collaboration and communication between local, state and federal orgs, but more importantly between govt
orgs and the ngo's and communities on the ground. Everyone is doing good work with a piece of the whole, now is
the time to connect the dots.
More coordination among state and federal agencies. Less attention to individual species and more to habitat
conservation.
More education for individual citizens, landowners and community and state non-goverment organizations. Research
and development of better non- polluting chemicals for land use. Better enforcement of current anti-polluting laws.
Find the offenders before the land and water has been polluted.
More education of the public and additional commitment and resources will be important for the future quality of
Missouri Outdoors.
More emphasis on "Outdoor" Education with curriculum especially designed for Missouri and mandated for all
Missouri public schools. For the general public/elected officials, an Outdoor economics 101 course. Need a state tax
benefit for landowners wanting to donate a conservation easement and participate in long-term outdoor
enhancement programs.
More emphasis on environmental (not just outdoor skills) education throughout the education system. Sustained
public attention to Missouri's structure of policies, laws, and regulations. Focus on ecosystem health rather than

nonexistent barge traffic that pretends to use it.
More one on one interaction with outdoor professionals. More common sense approach to our natural resources
rather than a book taught answer.
More Personnel on the ground delivering our services. More Indians and less Chief's. Better wages for retaining state
employees and more funds to carry out our jobs.
more programs to increase older MO residents involvement in the outdoors. Involve more women/ladys
Need combined interagency effort (State/Federal/local) with private landowners and others to achieve changes on
private land thru voluntary, non-regulatory efforts. MO has an excellent start on this effort, just need to find ways to
expand this cooperative effort on areas of mutual interest.
Need federal funding for conservation of "all wildlife". Need continued state attention to "all wildlife" conservation.
Need to engage citizens in the outdoors so they will value (and recognize)nature when they see it. Need to get
legislative officials and conservation organizations on the same page rather than competing pages. Need to
constantly promote collaboration among conservation organizations and interests. Need to promote collaboration
among hunter/angler/non-consumptive interests.
Need long term sustainable funding to fully support the protection and maintainance of state air, land & water
resources.
Need more personnel in the field to interact with the landowners and the public, more educator/naturalists, more
access to public lands in suburban areas (not necessarily more hunting land), involve a greater diversity of people in
the outdoors.
Need regular and broad discussions of status and future of Missouri Outdoors among professionals, politicians and
public. Somebody or some organization or agency must facilitate or it won't happen.
Need strong, unified message from new Governor to promote alignnment of efforts and resources towards enhancing
quality of life for Missourians through clean water, healthy habitats and Missourians committed to supporting that.
Need stronger legislation to protect MO's environment,eg.,limits on CAFOs and coal-fired power plants. Also need
increased funding for key programs within DNR, including creating a Climate Action Plan for Missouri.
Need to better manage the resource that are availale. Rethink what needs to be done. Don't try to please everyone,
Need to develop a sustainable funding stream for DNR that meshes with DoC and DoC funding needs a better way
to grow with increasing expenses. Probably need to look at dedicated taxes on outdoor recreation equipment in
addition to a general sales tax for both.
Need to encourage private landowners to place a high priority on natural resource management thru voluntary, non-
regulatory actions on their land.

Not allowing special interests to decrease the effectiveness of targeted agency missions and funding with diversion
of resources for minimally related projects and efforts. <> Resource management focus - the CWS and COAs are a
step in the right direction. <> Creating supportive legislators instead of antagonistic ones. <> Keeping citizen
conservation groups like CFM in the lead with special interest NGOs.
partnerships---a small percent of Missourians are really engaged and they spend too much time fighting over focus,
or competing for funding
Pass no nonsense, zero tolerance laws with high costly penalties. I see no excuses for allowing special interests and
loopholes for those that would stretch to the limit alternate uses. If we're going to have clean air, water and land use,
then we have to be completely committed. Air, land & water usage highly prioritized in political & appointed circles.
No exceptions for any state or federal agencies. No tolerance for 'other agenda' elected officials with very little

stream and ecology minded maintenance services.

Private landowners control most of the land in the state of MO, however very few of them know anything about
protecting resources and improving their forests and fields. Much more education and cost share available to private
landowners would greatly improve the quality of the states resources. National politics is greatly concerned about
issues like ANWAR, which is a 2,000 acre area in Alaska, while there are millions of acres in the state of Missouri in
which cattle are in streams, ag runnoff is not prevented, proper forest management is not coduncted, and a large
variety of other detrimental practices are implemented, but no one seems to care. I beleive that not only should
landowners be educated about the drawbacks and benefits of proper land management, but should also be fined for
not complying with proper regulations. If it is not ok for a industrial building to dump waste into a stream, why is it ok
for a cattel farmer??? Thank you.
Promote youth projects across the state to ensure the future of our sport.
Providing opportunities for our youth to experience the outdoors. Especially those in urban areas. Additional
educational efforts targeted at the youth.
Public awareness; I know cost-share looks very fair but government both federal and state are going to have to pay
100% on some very important issues
Public education and awareness about critical environmental needs and the direct tie to public health.
Purchase more land for public to enjoy
Renewal of required educational materials in public schools, particularly at grade school levels. Re-introduction into
grade schools of weekend camping trips, tours of working farms/orchards/river locks/ barge lines/ natural springs/ the
albino squirrels of Missouri/ outstanding park bird watching -- Tyson for turkeys, for instance; bluebirds in season.
Legal acquisition and demonstration use in classrooms of common bird's nests and broken (hatched) eggs shells,
such as Robins. Restoration in the state of Missouri of a teenage summer Conservation Corps for such things as
seeding/planting perennial flowers and hearty trees along our highways, boulevards and thoroughfares, and
especially de-forested urban, suburban, and rural areas denuded by commercialization and ham-handed
"development" -- particularly trees and shrubs that bear fruit, seeds or nuts that sustain wildlife, as well as humans.
Lots and lots, for instance, of apple trees and mulberries (unsprayed) that even little children in the cities can pick. (
After all, we all now need mass transit.) I think conservation and ensuring the quality of Missouri Outdoors might also
mean supporting small community (neighborhood) produce coops, as well as small and medium sized farms
ownership. We need to "re-seed" (support) such things as beekeeping, again, as a "common", not an exotic hobby,
etc., etc., etc. And Big Baseball Games should have good free seats for the kids, aged, and vets!
Restore funds to urban non-profits that encourage volunteer participation and public education on the issues
affecting the health of their families
Restore the all species focus for MDC. Deer, turkey, and quail can not survive in a vaccuum and focusing most
resources on them is a detriment to conservation within the State as a whole.
Rural counties without zoning need to look at it again. Their citizens may be ready to accept controls in order to
protect their natural resources from CAFOs, trailer parks and poorly-built or unwanted development. Counties should
be able to reject CAFOs at the local level. Environmental education needs to continue with more emphasis in the
schools. MCD needs to continue to build connections with schools as do outdoor organizations. More babies are now
born in the U.S. to single mothers than to married ones. Single parents, male or female, have a much tougher time
introducing their children to outdoor activities than parents with full-time, committed partners. My real opinion is that
men have abdicated their responsibilities as fathers in many of these cases. This social trend is a major challenge for
us in the outdoor industry and for those who care about the future of the outdoors. A campaign to get men to step up
to their responsibilities as dads, including teaching their offspring about the outdoors, is in order.
Additional resources usually help most agencies/organizations (exception may be the Fed. Gov.)improve their
programs & meet their goals. Professional leadership & staff are very necessary or funds can be wasted. Education
of the elected officials and the general public regarding the importance of our outdoor resources & the necessity to
provide adequate funding is very important. Removal of the "political" intrusion in the management of these
resources is paramount if programs are to be developed and implemented as they should be. Develop well thought
out plans for a top quality outdoor program in the state & hire and retain the best professional managers possible to
carry out that plan. The dollars necessary for quality programs should be "earmarked" and not available for political
maneuvering. Supporting non-governmental organizations with a history of fighting for conservation should also be
given very high support.

“What are your ideas and strategies (for example, additional resources, programs, management

Secure reliable, high level of dedicated federal funding to states for conservation programs (Teaming With Wildlife.)
More staff for better monitoring and stricter enforcement of air and water quality standards. Better federal protection
of wetlands. A strong state conservation easement law. Stronger, conservation and open-space oriented county and
local zoning regulations. Smart growth initiatives for population growth areas of the state. Forest Legacy like
programs for keeping working forests, grasslands, farms from slipping to a lower conservation condition.
Significant focus on youth and nature Better federal govt support for Outdoors, etc. (including $$) Revitalize
leadership in state agencies
Sometimes state and federal dollars are better utilized by NGOs who are intimate with a particular issues rather than
bureaucracy-laden agencies who are often times consumed with competing political agendas. For instance, ag
commodity organizations can be excellent partners in conservation efforts where competing interests need a
champion to find a win-win solution. This is particularly true with water quality issues where agriculture is perceived
as a contributor to the problem when actually, the ag community would like to work proactively to manage those
issues.
St. Louis model of trails/greenspace tax coudl be replicated. Tax credits for open space preservation easements
should be considered, along with other incentives to land owners to avoid development. Stronger land use planning
at state and local levels. More strategic use of soil conservation tax, including using more in urban and developing
suburban/ex-urban areas.
State agencies generally do a good job. What is needed as a supplement is a vigorous ngo presence that can enlist
people on a grass roots level to both educate and then take ownership on conservation matters. This means that
state agencies will need to reach out more to these ngo's, like the Nature Conservancy, Ducks Unlimited and others.
State/federal agencies partnering with community and ecosystem based non-profits to bring the ordinary citizen in for
education and volunteer work. Develop priorities and find partners to make them happen. Also, continue to develop
working with private landowners to accomplish broader missions and goals.
Stay the course. Missouri does this better than anyone in the country.
Support education of trained resource proffesionals from the U of MO.
Support of the Max McGraw's training for college level students (CLfT) conservation leaders for tomorrow. Several
folks from MO are going to be trainers for that - let's get it going here in Missouri as a satellite program. We also need
to get the politicians educated and in support of conservation - not to use it as a dirty word. Farm bill is most to
handling clean water issues - we need more support there. Retention of good employees at MDC needs to be a
priority. The average employee now works the 40 hour week and goes home at the end of an 8 hour workday - NOT
GOOD. Salaried employees should work until the work is done. We are not getting those dedicated folks to stay with
MDC. Dedicated to a paycheck and a cushy job, yes. Dedicated to the resource - fewer and farther between.
Recruitment needs to start in elementary school - NOT in college. Diversity is an ugly word in my opinion, we need to
have folks hired on that are the best at the job, not just the ones with the right skin color or sex. Bad for everyone
when folks do that. We need more priority on education - use the local NGO's to forward this mission. Iowa uses a 2-
3 day weekend program for young girls - that would be a good one to use. Also, archery in the schools seems to be
an excellent program.
Sustainable funding needed. Federal requirements without the funds to implement should be slowed. We need a
significant increase in data collection and analysis to provide a better basis for longer term decision-making. Salaries
for staff with 10-15 years experience do not compare with private sector, and we lose a lot of upcoming talent.
The best efforts to protect our natural resources seem to happen at the grass roots level, but there is a reluctance to
fund local NGOs that provide the work, education and volunteers needed to get the job done. NGOs need
sustainable funding, but they need to be accountable.
The conservation focus must shift away from specific public lands purchased for preservation/recreation, and that
focus must turn toward total ecosystem enhancement and enjoyment, especially at the neighborhood level. Whether
that neighborhood is a city downtown, suburb or farm, it's important to the ecology. A side benefit to positive gains
made on private and public lands everywhere from that approach will be more hunting, fishing and nature watching
opportunities for the public. The Conservation Areas of Opportunity are an example of a narrow focus that most
people don't, and never will, understand. Because that program is as much about grant snagging and budget shifting
as it is about ecology. People need to understand better the true pre-Columbus ecology of their state, how their
neighborhood fit into that ecology, and how restoration and maintenance can affect the world for the beter. Care of a
tiny wet-weather creek bed in a back yard leads to major watershed improvements when the whole state recognizes
the beauty and function that makes micro-ecology conservation important.            Signed -- Bill Graham             The

The current crises in our financial instutions reaffirms the fact that individual citizens need to take responsibility for
the changes they want to see. Government can, and should, act as a catalyst only. We have become too dependent
on government solving "our" problems. Each citizen needs to take action on whatever level they can.
The fundamental basis for success in protecting our natural resources and sustainable use of these resources is
public/individual awareness (education) and involvement. When citizens clearly identify their priorities, governmental
agencies and elected officials are more likely to respond. Promoting outdoor activity and understanding through
grass roots/'hands on' programs and media exposure can help raise awareness and involvement. Bottom line ~ if
individuals don't care, our funding directives and regulations will reflect that lack.
The private citizen and the non-government organization are all important to the Conservation Movement. The
Government cannot accomplish much.
The public needs to be more involved in/have more ownership of natural resources conservation.
Agencies/organizations need to do a better job of providing opportunities for public to be involved. Agencies need to
do a much better job of involving non-traditional stakeholders in natural resources decision-making. Hunting license
sales are going to continue to decline over time and we need alternative funding sources to replace those.
Massachusetts, Wisconsin and New York have some innovative funding initiatives for resource conservation and
might provide models for Missouri to consider. Finally, if we put as much effort into finding ways to connect
Missourians to wildlife and the outdoors as we do to hunter and angler recruitment and retention, we will build a
citizenry that has a strong connection to Missouri Outdoors and who will support future efforts.
The quality of Missouri outdoors is dependent on the people who own it, the private landowner. Programs need to be
focused on assisting them with the management of their property. State agencies, particularly in Missouri have plenty
of money to implement an effective program and I certainly would be opposed to increasing the level of funding for
any state agency.
There are a lot of outdoors people who want to spend time in primitive, large-scale, biologically rich, wilderness-type
settings, and they shouldn't be forced to head to the Buffalo River in Arkansas or “out west” to have such
experiences. I think our public lands agencies disregard these people 98% of the time. ONSR, MDC, DNR, and
MTNF should shift from management models that are based almost entirely on: "access everywhere at all times via
all methods", towards models that show a greater respect for and desire to restore more lands and waters to primitive
uses. “Nature deficit disorder” will certainly continue if young people can’t experience real, primitive, and remote
natural environments that don’t always have the feel of an interesting and comfortable back yard. ONSR should
enforce the closing of a number of roads that access the rivers – roads that were closed long ago but have recently
been opened back up (both legally and illegally). All agencies should put more emphasis on non-motorized access
and recreation; specifically addressing motorboat use on the Current, Jacks Fork, and Eleven Point Rivers, ATV use
everywhere, and roads built in nearly every remote area left in the state. The agencies should also put more effort
into "overall" conservation that is not so overwhelmingly geared towards higher-impact recreation, hunting, fishing,
and timber management. Restore as many native plants and animals as possible; including elk, bear, mountain lion,
and make every effort to eradicate invasives and curb the use of non-natives. Protect the habitat of endangered
species such as hellbenders and Indiana bats. Give state and federal laws the teeth they need to more adequately
protect the flora, fauna, waters, and lands of the state. Key land acquisitions should continually be addressed by
these same agencies, especially in critical areas where acquisitions could enlarge parks and preserves, protect
watersheds, and link blocks of publically owned land. Public lands should be used to curb the flow of the massive
development and subdivision of lands taking place in the Ozarks. Stronger cross-agency coordination and
cooperation would be highly beneficial. Bigger budgets for managing parks and preserves, and for providing more
and better law enforcement throughout agency lands is tax money well spent. Ensure that the conservation sales tax
always gets renewed, and that conservation is high on citizen’s tax agendas.
To fullest extent possible, common priorities/focus and improved communication between outdoor agencies,
advocates, legislators, and regulators; Means to monitor implementation, enforcement, and effetiveness of outdoor
laws and regulatory agencies; Objective based and evaluated outdoor education programs to meet priorities of
outdoor agencies/groups, including recruitment of public to outdoor activities; Always more legislative lobbying for
outdoor regulation and funding; Thanks.
Too many to mention but a couple are: Give high strategic importance to the protection of land and waters of the
state through acquisition, easements, and voluntary efforts by landowners. Elevate the role (past, future, potential) of
traditional outdoor users (e.g., hunters and anglers)in conservation.
TV could play a big role in how people think
Various forms of education are important strategies. Specifically education in regards to the importance of sewage

treatment plant upgrades, proper use and application of septic systems, how to balance development with
environmental protections, education of legislators and decision makers who could make a difference.
We are fortunate to live in a state who's citizens support conservation efforts but our elected officials don't seem to
hear that message.
We have our stuff mixed up. We manage fish and game rather well, but don't do very well on the environment. You
really can't lump all these subjects together.
We have to develop additional funding sources for conservation and work with private landowners to increase
conservation efforts in our state.
We must get kids interested in spending time outdoors and understanding ecological relationships and how those
affect each person's well-being. The link between economic well-being and ecological health needs to be better
stated and understood.
We need more corporate education and participation, more individual citizen education and participation, more
urban/single parent education programs, more federal and state funding and conservation as a priority for state and
federal officials and law makers.
We need to do a better job of educating our citizenry and the state and federal agencies on the big issues facing our
natural resources (e.g. water quality and quantity, invasive spp, climate change, habitat fragmentation, non-green
development) and the need for additional ways to conserve and protect (land trusts and conservation easements in
Mo are not used to the extent they are in other states) zoning is limited to urban areas and may not include protection
of natural resources. We also need to promote the intrinsic economic values as well as the real value of conserving
natural resources in the state - with tourism ranking high as a source of income to the state and local communities.
Increasing active partners with emphasis to active is paramount and developing new partners with non-traditional
organizations is important to the future of conservation.
We need to educate our young people about the great outdoors. This should be done in the schools. Programs for
the general public to take care of our natural resources. Educating and funding landowners to take better care of our
natural resources.
We need to get additional funding to State Parks and Historic Sites. We need to encourage families and children to
get connected with the out of doors. We need better laws to protect our water, air and soil... Too many loop holes
and exemptions.
We need to get more cooperation between the conservation interests and ag interests. For instance: We all know
well managed native grasses and forbs are much better for wildlife than fescue monocultures. In days of high
fertilizer prices warm season grasses with forbs can put weight on cattle cheaper than fertilized fescue. Barriers to
cattlemen converting a percentage of their pastures to WSG with forbs would include 1. Lack of knowledge about
WSG and forbs because of lack of experience converting fescue to them and how to best manage them. Many in the
conservation community could share knowledge with workshops, evening meetings, partnering to help, or other
means. 2. Many cattlepeople can't afford to loose the year or year and a half loss of production on the acres
converted to WSG and forb mix. They need $$ to make up for this loss or acres of grass on MDC, State Park, TNC,
Corp., MPF, or other conservation land to graze while their land is being converted. Maybe some way can be found
to use CRP land for this also. Getting the farm bill to help pay for loss of production might also be a solution. This is
just one example of ways to start getting gov. and ngos to work with private farmers to help both wildlife and the
farmers. Most farmers want to help wildlife if they can afford to do so.
We need to have much more collaboration between federal and state agencies and NGOs in Missouri. State agency
leadership (MDC, DNR) need to look outside their agencies and at the conservation community as a whole and look
for more opportunities to partner effectively. DNR clean water regulation is a joke. Federal outdoor agencies in MO
are generally weak and ineffective, esp. NPS, NRCS and USFWS. NGOs need to bolster their efforts. We need more
effective land trusts in MO.
We need to introduce new and more people to the outdoors. If we don't, who are we conserving and protecting it for?
We need to involve the younger folks, they are the ones who will be directly involved in the conservation, recreation,
and outdoor activities in the future. By targeting our students and educators, we can move much farther and faster
than if we try to move alone. Since we are taking this survey we are obviously leaders in the conservation field, and
in this case we must consider a very important thing; "As a leader, it is your job to provide leadership for others, but
more importantly it is your job to train and educate those that will lead after you" We must not overlook the fact atht
young people are already doing so many great things in the world of conservation. The Conservation Federation of
Missouri's Conservation Leadership Corps has made so many leaps and bounds in the 8 years they have been
around; writing legislation, advocating conservatoin and sustainability, and advocating other organizations as well.

“What are your ideas and strategies (for example, additional resources, programs, management
models) for ensuring the future quality of Missouri Outdoors?” unedited
We must take examples like this and follow in their footsteps, training the young people of our state and preparing
them as stewards of the land.
We need to work more with private landowners so that the vast majority of Missouri is improved for the benefit of
wildlife and habitat. We need sustainable farming and ranching practices, carbon credits, easements and other
public-private partnerships to work well together.
We support the Missouri Department of Conservation and its endeavors to protect the forests, fish, and wildlife of
Missouri. Landowners need additional technical assistance and cost-share to protect our land and resources.
We will build relationships and partnerships with a broad spectrum of stakeholders both within and outside the
Department. We will work to build competencies, diversity and leadership at all levels of our workforce• We will
review our programs for relevancy and effectiveness and make needed changes. We will manage streams with a
greater emphasis on watershed-scale issues. We will weave critical thinking approaches into our scientific and
business decisions.
With overall funding available I think We do a pretty good job, especially here in Mo.. I feel the federal level leaves a
little to be desired. Choosing the right legislators is critical, especially right now.

--stormwater pollution --water depletion --land fragmentation and road building
- failure to understand how systems work, tragedy of the commons or class stratification and environmental justice
a) Medium threat overall (extreme in some areas no threat in others) e) depends on who you listen to k) the challenge
will be extreme but the threat is undetermined. We are at the cusp; depending upon which way it goes it could be
good or bad.
Alternative energy MUST be in the context of ecosystem health,carbon budgets, and social justice, not an end in itself.
This is an interesting survey, but it requires discussion rather than random dots.
As for invasive species, this one is about to become a very big problem. We need to combine local, state and federal
governmental resources to address many of these.
as things become economically tighter, I am afraid some people may choose to let some programs suffer as a means
to protect thier wallets.
Climate change in general is an extreme threat, but once something is paved or extinct, the climate doesn't matter to
that place or species.
Consolidation of farms into corporation and/or hobby size operations both create problems. Corporate farms often
employ unsustainable and damaging agricultural practices, while "hobby farms" break up natural communities.
corn to be used as a fuel should of never been allowed to happen
Degradation of our water quality - as goes the quality of our water, so goes the quality of our life.
Failure to grow new professionals. The University of Missouri is not engaged in this at nearly the level needed - one
piece of information valuable in this process would be to determine how many MU graduates have been hired by
agencies. There is a major disconnect here. A much stronger partnership among agencies, universities (specifically
MU), and interested citizens is needed. An independent external review of the natural resources program at MU is
needed.
failures of traditional farms and their associated practices and farming culture...associated with the lack of rural
zoning...e.g., look at what is happening south of Sedalia, as 5-acre hilltop McMansions eat up the rural landscape.
Farmers not educated on their effects on the local, national, and global environment.
Focus groups are competing for available $. This can help or hurt conservation programs depending on your view.
Special interest groups may raise $ for a specific topic, but their interest may not be consistent with conservation
needs in a given area.
groundwater use for industry such as ethanol production and poultry process is a major threat.
Habitat fragmentation and water quality and quantity issues.
Having no meaningful energy policy. Greed The use of crops for fuel is a bad idea - the use of biomass for fuel might
be a good idea if properly done
High Fuel cost or generally bad economic conditions. Natural disasters may be a distraction ( i.e flooding on Missouri
Rivers and strams as we saw in 2008. Poor outdoor ethics or lack of respect for other users such as abuses
encountered by families and others using our outdoor resources.
human population growth
I feel that inadequate funding and mis-use of personnel talents are the biggest threat from state and federal agencies
I've dealt with in the last 15 years. Too many good programs starving for money and too many fine, caring people
stymied by bureaucratic mis-handling.
In a nutshell, the major threats are a growing population that is increasingly uninformed about conservation issues as
well as less inclined to pursue traditional outdoor activities. Development and societal priorities as well as need for
alternative energy and food (to feed the world) will put pressure on natural resources like never before and fish, forest
and wildlife will lose out if the public sense is that thse are luxury and not necessity. Doing things the same way we
always have will not achieve success - we must devise new strategies and change witah the times.
increasing vehicular traffic on roads - bring back the train services for grain, etc.
just plain apathy.
Lack of a comprehensive energy and sustainability plan that improves health and makes the state sustainable for our
future.
lack of education - sustainablity and the outdoors
Lack of Education for next generation of conservation minded adults
lack of monitoring lakes and streams

Comment/explanation to “Other Threats/Challenges?” unedited
Lack of rigorous outdoor education within our public school system and incorporated into the mission of corporations.
mercury in the water
Missouri needs to become a leader in shifting focus away from the man-made global climate change crusade. I fear
that conservationists will one day be regarded as opportunists who championed this issue in a well intentioned, albeit
misguided, attempt to advance conservation goals, and that some of the alliances we’ve made will be regretted.
Not dealing with population growth in a conservation-minded fashion.
Politics Spreading staff to thin (limited time) Failure to adequately prioritize
Population growth and inmigration for tourism through misguided and unregulated marketing campaigns. Money
coming in can be what is "desired" --but it will be our Missouri Outdoors -- going out! The desertification of North
Africa dates back to Roman "desire" for trees. Recognize the camel's nose NOW. Missouri has beautiful but limited
desirable resources. We should also deal with these problems regionally.
Public lands agencies not seriously considering people's need (especially young people) for large-scale, primitive
natural areas.
Smart growth and strong planning and zoning along with land trusts, easement laws, would help in (a.).
State agencies that should be protecting the environment spending their time and resources on politics.
Too many people think we should relax barriers on oil drilling.
Water conservation is becoming the key issue of the 21st century. Without more emphasis and better programs of
education and control, the Earth could and probably will look like Mars some day.
We need to quickly develop alternative energy sources, e.g., wind and solar.
