Washington River Festival & Cleanup 2010

Washington is one of the most river-centric towns on the Lower Missouri River. The beautiful park overlooking the river was the ideal place to hold, not just a huge river clean-up, but also a local river festival highlighting the town's connection to the river. 218 volunteers gathered together to clean-up 15 miles of the Missouri River. 8.42 tons of trash was removed from the banks of Big Muddy!

Mari-Osa Cleanup 2010

There must have been some cabin fever built up, because despite only inviting a select few, word spread, and on Saturday, March 6th, 134 volunteers again emerged to clean what was left in this massive dump, mainly compiled of broken glass & small scrap metal debris. In the previous two years, volunteers have worked to remove over 30 tons of junk from this beautiful stretch along the Osage River. In addition to the main dumpsite this year, we tackled a huge tire dump in Osage City, where a group of folks collected & piled 240 tires for our reliable tire hauler, Jim Salmons of Jim's Tire Salvage to come and pick up.

Jefferson City Cleanup 2009

Thanks to help from US Fish and Wildlife Service, Missouri Dept. of Conservation, the University of Missouri and several local boaters, we got over 270 volunteers out on the river to pick up trash. Over 5 1/2 tons of it! Volunteers returned for a lunch partially donated by Central Bank and catered by Schulte's IGA. We held a trash contest and got to listen to tunes by River Relief favorite Naked Dave as well as Dr. Chordate.

Glasgow Missouri River Cleanup 2007

Glasgow is a real river town, with lots of river history and folks that know and love the river. Last time we had a clean-up in Glasgow, high river levels and hazardous drift kept us from putting many volunteers on the river. This year, a threat of snow kept volunteer numbers down, but 46 folks still showed up in a cold drizzle to work hard.
