Flood Resources

Our hearts go out to all those up and down the Missouri River valley rebuilding from the catastrophic flood of 2019, who are experiencing devastation to their families, homes, farmlands, properties, businesses and other enterprises.  Some are also dealing with severe storm and tornado damage. 

Times of extreme weather and flooding like this highlight the need for increased knowledge and understanding of our river systems by those that live along this important river valley. 

We are often posting updates and articles on our facebook page. Here are some additional river resources you can use to stay on top of the situation.  Click here for the full list!

A collection of photos, articles and videos about the MR340

Since 2007, Missouri River Relief has been a partner in the MR340 race - a 340 mile paddling race across the state of Missouri. Racers purchase super cool race stickers and all of that money goes to support our efforts. We bring as many safety boat crews as we can and help up and down the race course.
