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. Stay tuned for more details! Click here for all the details.
