Yesterday was a rainy and fun first “Missouri River Days” program for this fall. For a half-day field trip at the Missouri River, we had students brave the rain from Ridgeway, West Boulevard, Midway Heights, and Alpha Hart Lewis Elementary Schools.

A big thank you to our experienced boat drivers and deckhands: Kevin Tosie, Patty Farrar, Kory Kaufman, Ragan Webb, Anna Miller and Nancy McKenna.

And our amazing presenters and volunteers, Claire Jackson, Stephanie Michels, Everett Stokes, Barney Combs Bonnie Selting, Rob Nix, Amy Meier, Meg Trull, Starkie Kreuder from Access Arts, Eileen Combs, Melanie Knocke, Scott Hamilton from U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Sue Hamilton, Brian McKeage, Darby Niswonger and Team from Missouri Department of Conservation.

We are looking forward to Paxton Keely and Parkade Elementary Schools on the river on Monday. Thank you to CPS Science, City of Columbia, MO - Office of Sustainability, and Bass Pro Shops & Cabela's Outdoor Fund, Cooper's Landing Riverside Resort & Marina for making this experience possible.

Thank you for making this happen for these kiddos! My daughter was so excited (she was super bummed when their trip was rained out in the spring) and hasn’t stopped talking about it all weekend.

Some brave and happy looking 4th graders! Strong work everyone! Looks like someone planned ahead with the rain ponchos 👍🏼👍🏼

The kids had a great and they were loving those fun ponchos! A little rain didn’t stop us!

Look at the happy faces on those kids, they had so much fun!

How do I join and when's the next few trips?
