Past Clean-Up Events

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.
This was our fifth year to host the Washington River Festival and Missouri River Clean-up, and it was the best yet! Click here for all the details.

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!
