Television premiere to trace Missouriís conservation history
April 9, 2012
Missourians can take a trip through their stateís conservation history starting April 14. That is when the Missouri Department of Conservationís 75th anniversary documentary will begin airing on television stations statewide.
The half-hour television special is titled The Promise Continues. It traces Missouriís ground-breaking conservation movement from the formation of the Restoration and Conservation Federation of Missouri on Sept. 10, 1935, through the rebuilding of the stateís forests and restoration of wildlife from deer and turkey to bald eagles. Archival photographs, sound recordings and film footage help tell the story of how citizens and the professional agency they created turned Missouri into a great place to hunt, fish, hike and enjoy nature. Missouriís healthy forests, fish and wildlife have been sustained by successful conservation and are the foundation of Missouriís economy and quality of life.
The television special will air in Kansas City April 14 at Noon on KCTV and at 4 p.m. on KSMO TV
