Past Clean-Up Events

Hermann Riverfront Park - Hermann, MO
Our final clean-up of the 2014 Big Muddy Clean Sweep was at high water, just a couple feet below flood stage. This made it easy to get up on the banks and clean up the gorgeous riparian forest. Boats headed out every 1/2 hour and we worked until the late afternoon cleaning up the forest and hauling in trash. Missouri weather doesn't get any better and we enjoyed one of the prettiest stretches of river around.

Wilson's Serenity Point at Noren Access
As part of our 2014 Big Muddy Clean Sweep, a two-month continuous clean-up in September & October, we rolled with the changes as the river swelled close to flood stage after massive October rains, and cleaned up the surrounding area by land.

Franklin Island Conservation Area and Isle of Capri Hotel & Casino
As part of our 2014 Big Muddy Clean Sweep, a two-month continuous clean-up in September & October, we spent a wonderful week in Boonville. The day included two events in one with the Boonville Missouri River Clean-up and first ever River Festival. It was a full day of fun on the river - one we'll never forget!

We kicked off our Big Muddy Clean Sweep 2014 with a great cleanup of the Grand and Missouri Rivers based out of the sweet river town of Brunswick.
81 volunteers removed 2.1 tons of junk from the banks of both rivers.

Riverfront Park, Leavenworth, KS
This was our first river cleanup in Leavenworth and Weston. First and foremost, we have to commend these two river communities for their hospitality and openness to our organization. Both communities were easy to work with and made planning this first-time event fun and seamless. During our trash scouts, we were amazed at the amount of trash we DIDN’T see. Weston, Missouri and Leavenworth, Kansas are two of the cleanest river communities we’ve ever seen. We give them kudos for their tremendous efforts to keep their communities and the Missouri River, clean!
