Ben Brandell and Misty Mitchell, both of Wonders of Wildlife; Diana Tannehill, Wonders of the Outdoor World (W.O.W.) participant; and Denny Bopp and Tyler Schwartze, both of Missouri State Parks, display a patchwork quilt made of T-shirts from the last 20 years of W.O.W. School, a national outdoor educational conservation event. The special quilt, which was made by Tannehill, was presented to Bopp, who is retiring after 41 years of service. The annual conservation event is a partnership between nine different agencies, some of which include the Wonders of Wildlife, The Missouri Department of Conservation, the Missouri Division of Tourism, the U.S. Forestry Service, the Army Corps of Engineers, and Missouri State University, and was founded to get families outdoors to learn a variety of outdoor skills. A sampling of classes offered included archery, Dutch oven cooking, survival skills, predator trapping and first aid. A Kids Camp was also offered, along with a fish fry Saturday night.
