New App Connects You with the Outdoors

The Missouri Department of Conservation recently announced the release of a new, free mobile app that makes it easier to discover nature and enjoy outdoor activities. The app, MO Outdoors, allows users to quickly and easily find MDC offerings based on the types of outdoor activities they want—close to home, work, or 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. Download the app in Google Play for Android or the App Store for iOS devices.
