Tons of Trash

Saturday, October 15th, 2022

With a beautiful view of Missouri's capitol building, Missouri River Relief will be hosting a cleanup on Jefferson City's reach of the river! 2019's cleanup brought rain on cleanup day, but as you know--we are out there rain or shine! The volunteer turnout was still phenomenal too! We appreciate all our hardworking volunteers that help remove trash off the Big Muddy, regardless of the weather conditions. Make sure to register to join us at the beautiful Wilson's Serenity Point at Noren Access on October 15th.
