Kevin Meneau, Fisheries Management Biologist, Missouri Department of Conservation, has many facets to his position. He is well known for his efforts to protect and promote healthy diversity of fish in Missouri lakes and streams. Kevin has fostered relationships with corporations, communities and angler groups to teach parents and kids to appreciate and enjoy the outdoors by becoming life time anglers.
Although Kevin certainly could be considered a best friend to the fish in Missouri, he also has been a strong leader in the creation and completion of The La Barque Creek Conservation Plan. He has generously shared the knowledge garnered in his 25 years with MDC to help the Friends of La Barque Creek Watershed and has been our greatest resource as we navigate our way through the watershed plan . Kevin brought together many conservation type organizations, both private and public to assist in the process.
Kevin has and continues to encourage land acquisition and easement protection. La Barque Creek Watershed now is home to around 4,000 acres of such property.
