The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) Wires Over Wildlife program is a voluntary partnership between landowners and Citizens Electric. The goal of this partnership is to improve native plants and habitats where power lines pass through electric company easements. These power line right-of-ways connect properties as well as wildlife corridors and provide great opportunities to improve Missouri conservation. This program works to convert overgrown brush and trees under electrical lines into more productive wildlife habitats, such as food plots or native wildflowers that benefit pollinators and wildlife. MDC provides expertise and plans the projects, Citizens Electric provides cost-share funds, and landowners contribute annual maintenance such as mowing or light disking.
