That's right! For our first large cleanup of the year we are heading just downstream of the Kansas City area to finish what we started during last year's Big Muddy Clean Sweep. The river stretch near LaBenite does such a great job at collecting the trash flowing from the metropolitan area that we couldn't resist another chance to clean up the banks in this area. Join us on Saturday, April 9th to make a huge impact on this stretch of river.
