Community River Clean-ups

Our large scale River Clean-ups provide volunteers the opportunity to explore and enjoy the river with family, friends and neighbors while beautifying a gorgeous stretch of the Big Muddy. River Clean-up’s will leave you satisfied in knowing that you are playing a role in improving your watershed.  Click here to sign up for events. 


Here’s the River Clean-ups we are hosting in 2017: 


"Away Teams" hosted by partner organizations that Missouri River Relief assists with:



The Big Muddy Speaker Series brings together Missouri River experts with community members to share knowledge and perspective on the Missouri River, its history, ecology, commerce and more. It is created and inspired by a partnership of organizations with a common goal - to deepen the connection of our communities to the river that connects us to each other.

We pride ourselves on bringing communities together regardless of what the occasion might be, big or small.  Here's a few public outreach events you'll be welcome to participate in:


River Races

To witness the determination of river racers, the grit of the ground crews and the hospitality of the volunteers involved are truly inspiring. We are proud to provide safety boats to assist up and down these race courses and be part of so many races that have changed the way our state looks at our rivers. These serve our mission to connect people to the Missouri River in an intimate way, while also raising money as a fundraiser to support our efforts.

Our education programs engage participants’ innate sense of wonder and natural curiosity to explore the Missouri River through place-based programs that are interdisciplinary in nature and experiential in character. We seek to build participants’ knowledge and understanding of the Missouri River through hands-on experiences that will deepen their connection and sense of responsibility for its care and stewardship.
