Want to integrate place-based learning into your classroom but don’t know where to start? Check out our Missouri River Scientist Traveling Trunk program!

The program consists of four lessons designed around 4th-grade learning standards. The trunks come with everything you need to facilitate hands-on learning activities and engaging discussions about local science.

But you don’t have to take our word for it! (Reading Rainbow, anyone?) Check out what one teacher had to say about their experience:

“I always want to do more science, but it's so materials based that it can be hard to find the time to prepare everything. I love this trunk because it took care of all the materials and planning - and the kids had so much fun!”

Our board member, Cathy Gunther, has a ton of talents - one is jazz singing! Her crack bossa nova band Desafinados played to a full house of music fans to raise funds for Missouri River Relief in Cathy's living room. This is an awesome team of fantastic musicians - thank you all so much for making it happen.

Huge thanks to Jen Bradford and her niece Anna for serving up tasty treats with a professional touch. Much gratitude to Logboat Brewing Company, Broadway Brewery, Rocheport Winery at Mount Nebo Inn , St. James Winery and Waves Cider Company for donating beverages!

And our deepest gratitude to everyone that purchased a ticket and donated! You raised over $2,000 for Missouri River Relief's programs!

Yeehaw! We had our Trailering Rodeo this past week, where some of our staff and crew brushed up on their trailering skills. We reviewed the proper mechanics of trailering and towing our boats, then put our skills to the test on the course!

Thank you so much to our Fleet Manager, Dave for the detailed and informative training to prepare for our program season!
