Washington River Festival and Clean-up 2017

Rennick Riverfront Park - Washington, MO

Washington, Mo. is one of the most river-centric towns on the Lower Missouri River. The beautiful park overlooking the river is the ideal place to hold, not just a community river clean-up, but also a local river festival highlighting the town's connection to the river.  We are looking forward to a Saturday full of river clean-ups, music, river education and good food on the banks of the Missouri.

Save the Date! The Washington River Festival will be held Saturday, April 8th from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. The Missouri River clean-up starts at 9 a.m. Sign up now to go for a boat ride and clean up the banks of the Missouri River!

Wild & Scenic Film Festival 2017

Thanks to a generous donation from the Blue Note, we were back in our favorite venue for the 7th Annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival. 

We usually count on horrible February weather to drive our nature loving friends inside to enjoy an afternoon of films with friends, but this year the weather was beautiful. But almost 500 people still showed up and packed the Blue Note! 

Thanks to all of those great attendees, the generosity of our sponsors (check out the list on the right), the fantastic donations of silent auction items from the community, unbelievable homemade treats, our amazing Alpine Shop "box office" and the hard work of our volunteers and the Blue Note staff, the whole event raised $5000 beyond expenses for Missouri River Relief! 

Plus we got to enjoy three hours of fantastic films and the truly wonderful music of Ruth Acuff and Jeff Mueller in the historic Blue Note. What a day! Scroll down for links to watch most of the films. 

Thanks to all of you that made it happen!
