Murrell Library To Host Conservation Exhibit

Posted September 23, 2013

Missouri Valley College’s Murrell Memorial Library will host the Missouri State Archives’ A Legacy of Conservation: The 75th Anniversary of the Missouri Department of Conservation exhibit Oct. 1 - 30, 2013.

A Legacy of Conservation offers a look back at the rich 75-year history of conservation in Missouri. The Missouri State Archives draws on its collection of more than 160 cubic feet of Conservation Commission photographs, documents and publications, as well as materials provided by the Conservation Federation of Missouri.

Murrell Library will have several events related to the exhibit including a history of the conservation department by Seth Moore, private land conservationist; a personal experience of agricultural development in Afghanistan by Dr. Larry Godsey, MVC agribusiness instructor; and presentations by the Missouri River Bird Observatory and MVC Assistant Professor Waylon Hiler. All events and exhibits are free and open to the public.

“We are excited to host this exhibit,” said Pam Reeder, Murrell Library director. “It is interesting to see how the Conservation department got its start and all the developments and innovations they have gone through.”
