“U.S. Forest Service has faced reduced funding in recreation maintenance over the past few years and has suffered from reduced manpower as well,” said Mark Twain National Forest Eleven Point District Ranger Tim Bond. “Damage such as this reduces the public’s ability to enjoy their national forest. It also impacts other recreation areas because funding has to be pulled to make these repairs. We are looking for help from the public to assist us in locating those responsible.”

Mark Twain National Forest is the largest public land manager in Missouri. It has 1.5 million acres in 29 counties in southern and central Missouri.
