Many of the MoFRAC member organizations work extensively in researching and implementing management techniques to ensure that Missouri continues to have healthy and diverse. The "Sagebrush Rebellion" was born during this upsurge in federal environmental and public land protection in the 's.

Abstract—The era of timber exploitation and early conservation in the Missouri Ozarks Cited by: 3. Forests grow in long rotations ( years in Missouri). The forest owner needs to believe that his property rights are protected so that a long term management plan can be carried out.
Reaching forest sustainability demands the incentive to manage for both current and future generations. Since the publication of the Sustainability Report, the Federal Government has adopted a definition of the term "sustainable." As do most definitions of sustainability, this definition recognizes three arenas in which the effects of natural resource decisions are closely linked.
This activity needs to occur not just within forests, but. The forests in Missouri were in bad shape. From the s through the s, exploitive timber harvesting removed much of the trees.
What remained was a degraded landscape, largely denuded of wildlife, plants, soils, and nutrients — essential components of a forested ecosystem. The Missouri Historical Society (MHS) assumes responsibility for its role in environmental stewardship. It seeks to minimize consumption of energy and materials, treat waste responsibly, and make sustainable practices an integral part of all operations so as to reduce the organization’s environmental footprint.
