Xplor Magazine and Website

Help the special kid in your life explore adventures in nature. Subscribe to Xplor, the Missouri Department of Conservation's new multi-media "nature-tainment" magazine designed just for 8 to 12 year-olds. Six times a year Xplor Magazine brings you eye-popping art, photos and stories about Missouriís coolest critters, niftiest natural places, liveliest outdoor activities and people who make a living from the wild. Together, Xplor's website and magazine get you outside and exploring! Once subscribed, kids will be able to follow Department photographers David Stonner and Noppadol Paothong as they stalk Missouri's wildlife and capture conservationists in action. The "Yuck!" department will give kids the scoop on all things slimy, gooey, stinky and just plain gross. In each issue, kids can see their own and their friends' activities illustrated in the section, "My Outdoor Activity." Xplor is available FREE to Missouri residents (one per household) six issues per year. OUT-OF-STATE subscriptions are $5.

A companion web site featuring videos, photos and games will also introduce kids to the Department's nature illustrators, David Besenger and Mark Raithel, who will show browsers how to draw basic critters.
