Our work is focused on how people are impacted by their environment. By connecting with communities around the state, we focus on spreading awareness, serving our neighbors, and advocating for change to make a positive difference in the lives of all Missourians.

Clean Air

We are committed to protecting access to clean air for every community in Missouri.

Safe Water

We are working to protect access to Missouri’s water treasures, such as the Ozark National Scenic Riverways. We support farmers whose practices build healthy soil and keep waterways safe and clean.

Sustainable Food

We believe that the food system is an integral part of our environment and that a healthy food system is both sustainable and equitable—it preserves the integrity of air, land, and water while producing abundant, healthy food that is accessible and affordable across all communities.

Parks and Public Lands

From county parks to the Mark Twain National Forest, Missouri’s public lands protect natural treasures such as springs, wetlands, wildlife habitat, and valuable water resources.

Hazardous Waste

Radioactive materials, lead, coal ash, and other hazardous wastes threaten our health and wellness, and MCE works to ensure we are all protected from the harm they can cause.
