Missouri River Relief is providing a virtual excursion on the Missouri River, where every moment brings a new experience. Our virtual field trip incorporates spectacular views of limestone bluffs, eagles' nests, and prehistoric artwork, as well as insider’s knowledge about the river imparted by our crew.
We have teamed up with Show-Me Stormwater to create an adventure challenge just for you and your family! Designed for kids in 2-5th grade (but fun for all ages), the goal of the hunt is to connect you to your local watershed, have fun in a creek, learn about food webs and how animals are dependent on healthy creeks, and last but not least find ways to help make your creek a better habitat for all animals!
This guide was created by Missouri River Relief and was designed to be used by elementary and high school students. The goal of this guide is to provide an engaging, hands-on experience for students beginning to learn about Missouri River floodplain trees. It is not designed as a foolproof taxonomic tree ID guide.
Looking for resources for teaching about the Missouri River, examples of river action projects, or ways to take learning outside? You’ve come to the right place. You're just a little early. The new curriculum seeks to build elementary student's knowledge and understanding of the Missouri River through hands-on experiences that will deepen their connection and sense of responsibility to its stewardship.
The Missouri River is home to fascinating creatures, as well as many issues. That is why we felt it was necessary to develop information packets. In these packets, a broad range of information is introduced and discussed; from the giants who dwell in the depths, to the consequences of the interaction between cities and the Missouri River. Each topic is accompanied by a summary description of what it is, why it is, and why it is important to the Missouri River.
