The Missouri Department of Conservation will be accepting applications online to fill its academy class of conservation agent trainees. The department says that it doesn’t necessarily recruit new agents on a yearly basis, but that the conservation department takes into consideration the number of agents exiting the field each year.
“25 years ago, it was anywhere every two to three years,” MDC Protection Branch Major Brian Ham said. “It just kind of varies. We don’t necessarily have a set formula on that. It just kind of depends on the departures.”
