River Relief Conducts Aerial Trash Scout

Missouri River Relief staff and volunteers hit the skies on Friday, March 11, for a trash scout by plane of the Lower Missouri River from Kansas City to St. Louis.

Working with a pilot and GIS technician from the non-profit Ecoflight, River Reliefers Jeff Barrow and Tim Nigh used the opportunity to get a birds-eye view of trash accumulations along more than 300 miles of the river.

Senator McCaskill honors River Relief!

On February 3, US Senator Claire McCaskill gave Missouri River Relief a special honor. On the Senate floor, she offered a resolution for the Congressional Record honoring Missouri River Relief on our 10th Anniversary.

We are humbled by the honor, which of course recognizes the efforts of the more than 14,000 volunteers who have removed more than a million pounds of trash from the Missouri River since 2001.

Join us for our monthly Big Muddy Speaker Series at the Les Bourgeois Bistro.

One of the names for Missouri is the "Cave State". Right around the town of Glasgow, the Missouri River dives south into the border of the Ozark uplift, where limestone hollows hide thousands of caves carved into the rock by eons of water flowing through it.

Many of these caves are home at some time of the year for Missouri's many species of bats. Graduate student and bat rehabilitator Kathryn Womack will introduce us to the world of Missouri bats and their biggest threat right now.

Support Team MoDak!

A couple of our great volunteers, Josh & Sarah Pennington, are taking on the Missouri River 340 race this summer. These folks like a challenge, but in addition to taking on the race itself, they want to use their adventure to raise funds for Missouri River Relief!

This couple grew up in Missouri and North Dakota, both states that the Missouri River runs through. So they're calling their race team Team MoDak. You can find more at their race website Support the Big Muddy.
