CWD Symposium

August 16 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Fortunately, the deadly chronic wasting disease (CWD) that kills white-tailed deer and other cervids has not been detected to date in the Kansas City metro area or nearby counties. However, many deer hunters in both firearms and archery seasons do hunt in counties south and east of the metro area, places where the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) has detected deer with the disease and is carrying out programs to monitor and limit the disease. MDC will host a free chronic wasting disease symposium from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 16, at the Burr Oak Woods Nature Center, 1401 N.W. Park Road, in Blue Springs.

Seating is limited so attendees are asked to register in advance by visiting the MDC Events page at https://short.mdc.mo.gov/Zgm. For more information, call MDC’s Burr Oak Woods Nature Center at 816-228-3766, or send an email to [email protected]

More information about CWD in Missouri is available at https://short.mdc.mo.gov/Z3N.
