According to a press release Thursday, attendees who are licensed through the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) can earn 2.5 continuing maintenance (CM) hours.

Participants will also recieve a copy of the MDC’s newest publication, “Conservation Planning Tools for Missouri Communities: A Reference Manual.”

The manual contains information such as planning processes and data, but also has tools such as case studies from other states to help the Missouri community conservation planner meet the needs of both people and nature.

Start time for the workshop is scheduled for 10 a.m. and is projected to finish by 3 p.m.
