The Missouri Department of Conservation is issuing kids citations. Now before you get upset, these are for doing good!
MDC conservation agents are now issuing ice cream “citations” for kids caught practicing responsible nature behavior, such as wearing their life jacket, fishing or hunting with their family, or for keeping nature clean. MDC Protection Deputy Chief Dean Harre says “It’s a great way to reward our young stewards of conservation and foster their love and appreciation for nature.”
MDC agents will have a booklet of citations and be on the lookout for young adventurers enjoying time in nature.
