River Front Park, Kansas City, Missouri
Missouri River Relief is headed to Kansas City, Missouri to host a large-scale cleanup to give families and civic groups an opportunity in stewardship. Last year we had planned to come to Kansas City, but due to COVID-19, we had to cancel. This will be our first time back to the city since our cleanup in 2018, so we are really excited to engage the Kansas City communities in experiencing the Missouri River while cleaning up the trash-ridden banks!
This cleanup will kick off our Big Muddy Clean Sweep, celebrating our 20th Anniversary as an organization. We would love to celebrate with you all by doing what we love, so please make sure to sign up! To find out more about the Big Muddy Clean Sweep, click here!
