Missouri Resources - Winter 2015 Feature Stories
Missouri is a Hot Spot for Cold Weather Birding
Several excellent winter bird-watching spots can be found in Missouri State Parks. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources and The Audubon Society of Missouri (ASM) have formed a partnership to help Missourians become more familiar with birds through the State Parks Checklist Project (SPARKS). The data is available in the form of checklists for bird watchers, nature lovers and park users.
GeoSTRAT – Tried and True
As educators across the state look at the Missouri Learning Standards, many are looking for a way to make the connection from content knowledge to applied science to give their students real-world skills using authentic data to answer real-world questions. As our state moves toward more sustainable use of our natural resources and a new, dynamic era of economic development, it is critical to prepare our students for the future. A tool that can help educators and students with this mission is the Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Web-based tool, GeoSTRAT.
