Finding places to discover nature and enjoy outdoor activities in Missouri has just gotten easier. The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) now offers its new, free mobile app — MO Outdoors. MO Outdoors users can quickly and easily find MDC outdoor offerings based on the types of outdoor activities they want close to home, work, or even while traveling.


MO Outdoors can help users find MDC conservation areas, fishing accesses, hiking trails, shooting ranges and nature centers around the state based on their desired types of outdoor activities including birdwatching, camping, fishing, hiking, hunting or shooting. Users can also mark "favorite" locations to quickly find them in future searches.


MO Outdoors also connects users to area regulations and season information, hours of operation, images, area closings, and interactive maps of area boundaries and features. The map function also displays features such as parking lots, boat ramps, and wildlife viewing areas, and allows users to easily navigate to the features using their device’s GPS. Users can also download maps for offline use.


MO Outdoors and MDC’s other free apps — MO Hunting, MO Fishing, and MO Con Mag — are available for download through Google Play for Android devices or the App Store for Apple devices.
