Young Professionals

Our Young Professionals group was formed in 2019 with the goal of creating a community for outdoors-minded young people.  This group serves to retain students graduating out of our youth programs and increase young adult membership in the Conservation Federation of Missouri.  As with most young professional groups we provide networking, professional development, and volunteer opportunities, share job announcements, and host events both in-person and virtually.
