“The Kansas City region is flush with outdoor opportunity. With just a short drive from anywhere in the city, you can reach 12 state parks and historical sites, over 20 lakes for fishing and more than 50 conservation areas for outdoor recreation. The opportunities for individuals and families to enjoy nature in and around Kansas City are endless,” said Brandon Butler, executive director of the Conservation Federation of Missouri.

Many Kansas City residents remain unaware of the incredible outdoor opportunities that exist near their homes. The Conservation Federation of Missouri is determined to inform individuals and families about the natural resources of our state and how they benefit each and every Missourian.

“We are proud to be part of CFM’s Explore the Outdoors: Kansas City event. At Bass Pro Shops, we hope everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and this event is a great opportunity to learn how to do so,” said Ryan Eberly, general manager of Bass Pro Shops of Independence.
